Maintenance Notes: 

It should continue to bloom without deadheading but removing old blooms may encourage additional blooming. With any Baby's Breath the more you use as a cut flower the more the plant branches and reblooms.

Clouds of small white flowers float above densely branched plants from May through October. The compact form makes this plant excellent for use as both a landscape and container plant. It is also good used as a cut or dried flower.
