Gypsophila is native to the Mediterranean region, Asia Minor and Eastern Europe. The official name of gypsophila is Gypsophila, from the Greek words 'gypsos' (gypsum) and 'philos' (love). This beautiful name refers to the flower's preference for calcareous soils. By the way, did you know that gingerbread is a distant relative of the carnation?

  • Immediately after purchase, place the gypsophila in a clean vase with lukewarm water and add a little cut flower food.
