Gaura lindheimeri ‘Pink Cloud’  full sun
Gaura lindheimeri Pink Cloud

This new floriferous cultivar of the popular Southwest native was introduced by Plants Delight Nursery. Like a celestial shroud, myriad deep pink blooms appear to envelope its upright stance for months on end. With arching, wiry, reddish stems, wine-colored buds and narrow, maroon-mottled foliage, we plant it amidst Oenothera stricta, Nepeta, Lavenders and hardy Geraniums for an overall relaxed look. A late spring pruning and lean, well drained soil will ensure countless flowers and a more compact shape.

Blooms June–November.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' high x 2'–3' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Gaura lindheimeri ‘So White’  full sun
Gaura lindheimeri So White

Like luminous butterflies on a breeze, four-petaled pure white blossoms with sparkly centers adorn slender, loosely arranged flower wands. This new, compact dwarf hails from Australia, and its narrow green leaves possess a willowy relaxed look that softens edges or nearby plants such as Boltonia ‘Snowbank’ and Artemisia ‘Valerie Finnis’. Asking only for good drainage, long blooming ‘So White’ deserves a place in your garden where it easily tackles heat, humidity and some drought.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 18"–2' high x 2' wide. Zone 5/6.

Gaura lindheimeri 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 carefree look that can be partnered with Salvia reptans West Texas Form.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 4' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Gaura lindheimeri ‘White Heron’  full sun

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 June-October

Size: 18"–2' high x 18"–2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
