loveofmylife680(z7)March 10, 2006

I have a huge plant that was here when we bought the place that I would like to know what it is, does anyone have a link to a picture of baby breath so I can see if thats what it is. It is blooming no,w going to try and look it up to see when it is supposed to bloom but so far no good pics.

It may be Bridalwreath, Spiraea prunifolia.

That Bridalwreath is very pretty baby's breath. I plan on trying to plant Baby's Breath around my roses this spring. Starting from seed. I hope it takes...I think my roses will be extra pretty with baby's breath all around it.

THAT"S IT !!! Thank you, mine is huge.[taller than me 5'5] I am going to research it and see if I can cut it back. If anyone wants some let me know, do not know how easy it will be to transplant but will try to get some in a pot and see how it does.

We divided some at Deb's that day - and it all appears to be fine - i too have blooms on mine - and they (all the different pieces) made it through the winter fine! I am actually gonna try to get some in the ground today....
