This Gaura with its clusters of starry pink and white blooms borne in panicles on upright stems, brings to mind butterflies dancing on the wind. This is rather apt as the long flowering perennial is highly attractive to native pollinators and is wonderful in slightly unkempt, naturalistic plantings.


With a bushy habit, the pretty flowers of Gaura lindheimeri Ellura introduce an elegant delicacy to herbaceous borders or tubs, which belies its robust nature. It is a useful plant for filling gaps in the order or as a prairie plant amongst grasses.

  • Flowers: May - October
  • Hardy
  • Well drained soil
  • South, East or West aspects
  • Full sun or partial sunlight
  • Resist cutting back in autumn as the foliage turns red as the weather gets cold
  • Don’t be alarmed if purple/brown spots appear on the plant. This is a response to cold temperatures as the plant is developing, and will not affect its growth or flowering.
