Gaura lindheimeri is commonly known as beeblossom, and it is truly magnificent. Beautiful, tall spires that have a multitude of small white (with a tinge of pink) flowers that move in the summer breeze like little fluttering butterflies

The flowers froth everywhere and turn the garden into a romantic haven and a bee paradise. They are wonderful plants for lining pathways in a cottage garden and make lovely cut flowers, either alone or as a filler in bouquets.

Gaura is a perennial that can flower in its first year. They love full sun, being prairie plants. Mulching well can help with severe winters.
