Characteristics of Baby's Breath

The small and dainty blooms of baby's breath make it a popular choice for event flowers. The scent of baby's breath is light and sweet, though it may not be a scent for everyone's tastes. The flowers are most commonly found in white, though they can also be found in tinted colors such as pink, blue, lavender, purple, terracotta, orange, and more. Baby's breath is a small flower, with each bloom being only about 1/2 inch in diameter. The flowers are clustered together on the stem, which can be anywhere from 6 inches to 2 feet in length. The small size of the flower makes it a popular choice for adding to bouquets and arrangements as a filler flower.

The baby's breath plant is a perennial, meaning it will come back year after year. The plant grows in a bush form and can reach up to 3 feet in height. The plant blooms from early summer to late fall. However, baby's breath can be found year-round through Moxie Blooms as the farms are able to grow baby's breath all year long.
