GAURA – Butterfly Flower or Beeblossom

(GAR ah)

Gaura Cynthia

Tried & True Gaura

Oenothera lindheimeri or Gaura lindheimeri

Gaura is generally a tender perennial (USDA Zone 6-9), but because of its outstanding qualities, it cannot be excluded from annual plant applications. When in bloom, their colourful flowers are reminiscent of pink or white flying butterflies dancing in the wind. Its small, narrow foliage is often green, but the leaves also come in burgundy, especially in the varieties with dark pink flowers. These pollinator magnets bloom non-stop from early spring until late fall. They are heat-loving, drought resistant, deer resistant and do not require a lot of care. They are perfect in the landscape, garden borders, window boxes, rockery and containers. Gaura makes a great addition for upscale patio containers with unbelievable flower power that goes all season long.
