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 $10.75

PREORDER FOR SPRING 2024

<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 June–November

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

Hardy to zone 6.

Gaura lindheimeri ‘Rosy Jane’ (P-2208)

Each $10.75

PREORDER FOR SPRING 2024

<i>Gaura lindheimeri</i> ‘Rosy Jane’

With her starry, narrow scepters of loosely arranged two-toned blooms, this British-born Gaura ‘Siskiyou Pink’ descendant has charm to sway. Slim, deep pink clustered buds unveil pretty white flowers enhanced by pink picotee margins above the compact purple-mottled greenery. Fashioning a low well-branched mound that braves hot humid weather, lean soil and dry conditions, ‘Rosy Jane’s long-lasting floral display lends a feminine delicacy to butterfly beds, native plantings, containers and even bouquets. (pp#22,290)

Blooms June–October

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

Hardy to zone 6.

Gaura lindheimeri ‘So White’ (P-1521)

Each $10.75

PREORDER FOR SPRING 2024

<i>Gaura lindheimeri</i> ‘So White’

Pure white 4-petaled blossoms with sparkling centers adorn slender, loosely arranged flower wands like luminous butterflies on a breeze. Hailing from an Australian nursery, this compact low growing Gaura promotes a willowy habit of narrow green leaves and green stems, which adds relaxed accents to 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 June–October

Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Zone 5/6.

Gaura lindheimeri ‘Summer Breeze’ (P-1595)

Each $10.75

PREORDER FOR SPRING 2024

<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 June–October

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

Hardy to zone 5.

Gaura lindheimeri ‘White Heron’ (P-1838)

Each $10.75

PREORDER FOR SPRING 2024

<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, four month long offering. 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 June–October

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

Hardy to zone 5.

Our feature plant: Primula vulgaris ssp. sibthorpii

Precious Primulas, Prized Pulmonarias and Fabulous Foliage!

Primulas offer elaborately-crafted colorful blooms in varied shapes,……

including draped bells, candelabras, drumsticks and pincushions. Many Primrose flowers  waft a delectable scent. Second-to-none for the dappled recesses of your garden, these easily grown, cold-hardy Primulas crave well-drained, humus-rich niches with adequate moisture and good air circulation. They can grace containers or be planted in swaths along shady walkways or in woodland gardens. Be sure to peruse our online Primulas.

Prized Pulmonarias……

One of the earliest perennials to bloom, you can be picking their enchanting urn-shaped flowers in February while the rest of the garden still slumbers. Many cultivars showcase an array of mercury-hued dapples, speckles and spots, while others sport solid pewter sheens or striking silver streaks. Easy-to-grow Pulmonarias prefer the lacy light of a woodland setting plus cool moist soil. Our newsletter also includes a handful of other shade-loving perennials that promise alluring foliage. Many of these perennials can be partnered with Pulmonarias for intriguing foliar contrast. You may wish to check out our online Pulmonaria offerings.

All of us plant and paper wranglers wish you good health and happy digging!
