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.
