Danziger is the world's leading breeder in Gypsophila, and has produced all of the major commercial strains now on the market (such as MILLION STARS® and many others), and we are happy to offer a couple of their varieties for a limited time.
Most of Danziger's breeding is focused on equatorial climates where frost is uncommon. While Gypsophila paniculata is hardy in zones 3-8 and that seems to hold true even on these varieties. We have had 100% of our established plants overwinter here in Vermont.
MILLION STARS® II is the newest generation of this florists staple. Smaller flowers are borne in great abundance. Stems are stronger, thicker, longer and more erect than classic Million Stars.
MY PINK® is the only pink baby's breath on the market, and might be accepted by a wider audience due to its novel coloration. We have enjoyed them here on our farm, and they should be grown more widely.
Do contact me if you are seeking larger quantities (500 or more plants) of some of the more famous varieties. We have access to them, but we have chosen to start with only two options to determine the interest of commercial gypsophila strains amongst American growers.
Available weeks 44 and 46 for fall planting. September 9 is the order cut off to receive plants in 2019.
These will be available week 10 through week 16 for spring 2020 planting. Ordering for these dates will be posted on Oct. 1 2019
