Butterfly Gaura

USDA Zone: 5-9

(=‘Harrosy’) This compact selection has both attractive foliage and flowers. It forms a bushy mound of attractive green leaves that often take on a rosy tint in cooler weather. Wands of small silky blooms appear for months on end. They're a colour breakthrough with white flowers featuring a pretty, cherry-pink picotee edge. Excellent in containers or along the front to middle of a sunny border. Needs good drainage. Introduced by award-winning Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants, UK. Note that botanists have recently reclassified and named this species Oenothera lindheimeri. Here at Heritage Perennials, we'll continue to list it under it’s more commonly familiar Latin name for now. USPP#22290: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
