Gaura lindheimeri 'Tutti Frutti'
- Position: full sun
- Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
- Flowering period: May to September
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Compact and very free-flowering, this delightful cultivar produces vibrant, hot pink flowers above the red-flushed, green leaves. It will gradually become more tolerant of drought as it matures, and will look impressive when planted in bold, irregular drifts throughout the border.
- Garden care: Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered, as it often takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather. Cut back and divide large colonies in spring.
