Gaura lindheimeri 'Summer Emotions'
- 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
Each white petal has a cerise-pink, picotee edge, creating distinctive two-tone flowers that emerge from slender, rich pink buds. Compact, yet vigorous and free-flowering they are excellent for patio pots.
- Garden care: Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered, as it takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather. Cut back and divide large colonies in spring.
