This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A graceful, hazy plant with airy spikes of bright pink, star-shaped flowers with long anthers like daddy long-legs, held high above the foliage on slender stems from May to September. This long-flowering perennial looks equally at home in an informal cottage-style garden or among soft grasses in a new perennial border. It is exceptionally drought-tolerant and will soak up the sun. Give it space, as its wispy stems will lean over.

  • Garden care: Resist the temptation to cut back gaura after it has flowered as it takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.
