Gaura lindheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies'

Gaura

Plant Type: Perennial
Exposure: Sun Tolerant  

Bright white, 4-petaled flowers resembling tiny butterflies flutter above the foliage from early summer into fall. As the flowers age, they take on a hint of pink. This plant forms a basal mound of finely textured, dark green leaves. The flower stems are long, thin wands which blow freely in the wind while the flowers look like a cloud of butterflies.

Gaura is a native North American wildflower; it is very drought and heat tolerant. Unlike the species, 'Whirling Butterflies' does not self-seed.
