Gaura lindheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies'
Herbaceous clump-forming native perennial 2’-3’ tall with arching red stems, pink flower buds and 4-petaled snow white flowers in late spring to autumn. Flowers open only a few at a time, and dance in the wind like butterflies. Narrow lance-shaped leaves are sometimes spotted with maroon. Plants can benefit from close planting or support from adjacent perennials. Best grown in sandy, loamy, well-drained soils in full sun. Needs good drainage.
