Gaura

Kin to the native Gaura lindheimeri found growing in Texas and Louisiana, our long-lived ornamental selections celebrate an open, lighthearted stance that’s well-suited for native or more natural-style plantings. Sun-loving Gauras are characterized by narrow stalkless leaves and branched flower spikes, which produce a multitude of buds and 1 in. wide blossoms, unfurling several at a time.

Gaura lindheimeri ‘Pink Cloud’ (P-1214)

Each $8.00

AVAILABLE MAY 2021

<i>Gaura lindheimeri</i> ‘Pink Cloud’

A welcome introduction from Plants Delight Nursery, this floriferous cultivar of the popular southern U.S. native readily proves its name with a heavenly cloud of myriad deep pink blooms, enveloping the far reaches of upright stalks for months on end. Described by wiry, arching reddish stems, wine-colored buds and narrow maroon-mottled foliage, ‘Pink Cloud’ can be planted alongside Oenothera stricta, Nepeta, Lavenders and hardy Geraniums for an overall easygoing union. A midspring pruning and lean well-drained soil ensure countless flowers and a more compact shape

Blooms JuneľNovember

Size: 2-1/2' – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.

<i>Gaura lindheimeri</i> ‘So White’

Like luminous butterflies on a breeze, 4-petaled pure white blossoms with sparkling centers adorn slender, loosely arranged flower wands. This compact dwarf hails from Australia, and its narrow green leaves plus green stems possess a willowy relaxed appearance that softens edges or nearby plants such as Aster ‘Bridal Veil’ and Artemisia ‘Valerie Finnis’. Asking only for good drainage, long-blooming ‘So White’ deserves a place in your garden, where it will tackle heat, humidity and some drought.

Blooms JuneľOctober

Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Zone 5/6.

<i>Gaura lindheimeri</i> ‘Summer Breeze’

Originating in Austria’s Sarastro Nursery and introduced by Jelitto in 2008, this robust selection boasts not only exceptional cold hardiness, but a bevy of beautiful white blooms. Slim burgundy-dappled, green leaves send up long, gracefully arching scepters, dressed in pink buds and pearly flowers from early summer ’til frost. Adored by honey bees and flower arrangers, ‘Summer Breeze’ is aptly named, exhibiting an airy laid-back look that can be partnered with Salvia reptans West Texas Form.

Blooms JuneľOctober

Size: 4' 0" high x 2-1/2' wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

<i>Gaura lindheimeri</i> ‘White Heron’

Growing as a bushy well-branched perennial, ‘White Heron’s attractive somewhat smaller upright stature is defined by dark slender stalks clad in lance-shaped medium green leaves. An ethereal plethora of white flowers, embellished by long wispy white stamens, matures to light pink atop thin stems for an eye-catching 4 month-long presentation. This recently introduced cold hardy Gaura signals cooler weather with wine-colored striations and appreciates lean sharp draining soil as well as periodic deadheading.

Blooms JuneľOctober

Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.
