After receiving the newest images of this, I noticed how different they are. (double and single). I researched online and found this plant, depending on conditions, has different pink shades and doubles part of the time.

joedstewart, the photos here are accurate so the mistake is by the seed catalog, not here. There are MANY different kinds of Baby's Breath, this is the annual type, full name Gypsophila muralis 'Gypsy Deep Rose'. There is a perennial type which is white, or very pale pink called Gypsophila paniculata. There is also a white form of Gypsophila muralis and a pale pink form. The photos here for Gypsophila muralis 'Gypsy Deep Rose' are correct. Also will come back from seed the next spring around where you had it planted. So once you have this, you will always have it if you want. Slightly weedy in that respect, but sooo pretty!

Neither your description, nor the photo agrees with that on page 18 of the 2007 "Wildflowers" brochure from Wildseed Farms, and I don't know which is correct. Perhaps the white-blossomed plant that I grew from the Texas/Oklahoma Wildseed mix is a different variety of Baby's Breath?

All-America Selections winner 'Gypsy Deep Rose' is an annual G. muralis with dainty, rose-like blooms. The flower form is double and semi-double up to 3/8 of an inch. Forms a mounded plant with a height of 8 to 10 inches, spreading 12 to 14 inches.

This diminutive plant prefers full sun and adapts to container culture. 'Gypsy Deep Rose' is easily grown from seed or bedding plants. Plants require little maintenance. Gypsophila is often associated with weddings because of their use in bridal bouquets.
