Also called panicled baby's-breath and common gypsophila.  Part of family Caryophyllaceae.

The genus name gypsophila means "chalk-loving", as it is often is found on dry, sandy, stony or chalky ("calcareous") soils.

Native to central and eastern 🇪🇺 Europe.  A friend says small clippings are the perfect companion to red roses.  But due to its tumbleweed behavior, baby's breath seeds are wind-dispersed, making it quite invasive in some dunes, hayfields and pastures, leading to prohibitions of this plant in some areas.  Invasive > learn+quiz Invasive > in USA+Canada Invasive > report it!
