Gaura lindheimeri Colso USPP#14815 ‘Sunny Butterflies’

This pretty variegated Gaura earns its name. Its unique variegated green and white edged foliage combines beautifully with the plant’s abundant warm light pink flowers.

Lovely in perennial borders and naturalized areas, it is also excellent as a potted highlight for outdoor living space. Wonderful plant for hot climates.

 

Colour: warm pink
Blooming Season: summer/fall

Zone: 5-10
Mature Size: H 60 cm x W 60 cm

Care:  Plant in a sunny location. This xeriscape perennial flourishes in hot, dry conditions, but mulching and regular deep irrigation help a lot. It is drought-, humidity- and heat-tolerant and adapts to almost any soil but does best in moist, fertile soil. To prune, cut off the top third in early spring to promote flower production.

Inventor:  Howard Bentley and Steve Eggelton of Australia
