Plant Overview

A superb, long-flowering plant for the border. Pure white flowers, blushed pink, from early summer right through into autumn. 

A plant for sunny, well-drained situations.

The petals turn pinker as they age. The amount of pink on these flowers can vary (it seems to be temperature related) and the overall impression can at times appear more pink than white.

Height: 1.2m

Gaura lindheimeri was brought over from Texas and Louisiana in 1850.

You may notice spots on Gaura foliage. Dark purple/maroon spotting develops naturally and is nothing to be concerned about. This is a physiological response to changing temperatures and is not disease related. It will lessen and disappear with warmer temperatures and the emergence of new growth.

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
