GAURA
(Plant heights are given at maturity)

Also called Wand Flower, these perennial beauties are tough and resiliant, tolerating areas prone to drought and those with high humidity.  Light and airy in appearance, these graceful plants have an open growth habit and light arching stems topped with dainty 4-petaled blooms that resemble a butterfly.  The foliage is rather like a willow - long and narrow.  They flower over a long period, producing many blooms.  Sure to be a hit in any garden, but especially useful in water gardens and Japanese gardens.

The plants are perennial, but should be treated as annuals in heavy soils.  They are easily propagated from seed sown in March and kept moist and warm at about 70F.  They are then transplanted outdoors when all danger of frost has passed in a sunny location.  Space at 12 inches apart each way. 

Hardy to -10F (-23.3C)
