Butterfly Gaura (Gaura Lindheimeri The Bride) 30 seeds (#1062)

Tall, open spikes of delicate white blooms tinged with pink. Adds elegance to the birder and makes a good long lived cut flower.
A North American wildflower, now widely grown across the continent. Plants bloom for many weeks, with loose sprays of white flowers tinged with pale pink. In the breeze these move constantly, looking like a cloud of small butterflies. Although Gaura may not always winter reliably, plants flower for the entire summer and fall, so consider using it even as an annual in colder winter regions. New plants will often appear from self sown seedlings.
Superb in containers, the subtle colour blends easily in borders. Drought tolerant once established.Note that botanists have recently reclassified and named this plant Oenothera lindheimeri. Here at Heritage Perennials, we'll continue to list it under it’s more commonly familiar Latin name for now.
Well-drained, fertile, moist soil is preferable, but will tolerate drought and partial shade. Remove spent flowers to prolong blooming period. Close planting or support from neighboring perennials is beneficial. May be cut back by half in late spring to control size.
