Team outing with Gypsophila
Gypsophila is the team player among flowers. Of course it looks great on its own, but it can also raise a mixed bouquet to a new level.
COLOURS AND SHAPES
For years the Gypsophila stood in the top 10 of the most popular cut flowers. The twigs were mainly used to dress up a bouquet or used as a dried flower. Gypsophila has pink or white flowers which are a modest 3.5 – 6mm in size.
The name Gypsophila comes from the Greek word ‘gypsos’ = gypsum (calcium sulphate) and ‘philos’ = friend. This lovely name indicates the preference the flower has for calcium rich soil. Did you know that Gypsophila is distant family of the carnation?
