Gaura lindheimeri 'Whiskers Deep Rose'
- 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
The deep reddish pink flowers of this gaura are accentuated by a cluster of spidery white stamens. Their enchanting colouring means they mix very easily with paler pink, white and purple flowering perennials, while their long flowering period will help liven up the border for several months throughout summer and into autumn.
- 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.
