The Ballerina™ Series is coveted for profuse flowering on compact plants. Gracefully dancing with a breeze; shell-pink, lightly-scented blossoms pirouette on slender stems. Flower sprays are numerous and more tightly held yet retain their delicate, almost orchid-like appeal.

A native to southern United States, Gaura will withstand heat and drought once established. A favorite of bees – it’s fun to watch them bounce on the airy fine-textured stems while feasting on the nectar-rich flowers. G. Ballerina Blush is more compact, won’t self seed and is very free flowering.

Gaura General Information

Gaura are vase-shaped plants that bloom from late spring until fall. Will thrive in high heat and humidity areas. Will need winter protection in far northern states.

Gaura Plant Care

Very tolerant of heat and drought. Needs good winter drainage. Airy habit responds to cutting back by one half when 12-15 inches tall to control height. Deep tap root dislikes transplanting. Will not self-sow. If needed, prune Gaura in spring to improve overwintering.
