Gaura General Information:

Gaura are vase-shaped plants that bloom from late spring until fall. Will thrive in high heat and humidity areas. Very nice, but will need winter protection in far northern states. Best grown in sandy, loamy well-drained soil.

Gaura Plant Care:

Very tolerant of heat and drought. Needs good winter drainage. Very airy habit responds to cutting back by one half when 12-15 inches tall to control height. Deep tap root dislikes transplanting. Allow some self-sowing if desired.
