< On the list of Rare and Endangered Plants of Armenia

Gypsophila is a genus of hardy annual and perennial plants (family Caryophyllaceae). There are many species, but the one most commonly encountered in gardens is paniculata. This is not only a good border plant but also valuable as a cut flower. The plant is easily propagated from seed, or by root division before growth starts in the spring.
