Gaura linderheimeri ‘Sparkle White’


Butterfly Gaura

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.224.350


his selection is considered a big improvement on native Gaura. It is an ideal size for containers, edging or in the rock garden. It forms a mound of narrow, green leaves with airy arching stems of dainty white flowers tinged pink from late spring through late summer. 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 this as an annual in cold winter regions. Plants must have excellent drainage to survive the winter. Heat and drought tolerant. 2014 AAS Bedding Plant Award Winner. Recipient of Europe’s FleuroSelect Gold Medal award for garden performance.
