Description

Gaura (Wand Flower)  Gar-ah

Gaura is a native of Mexico and Texas, and its Spanish name translates as “superb”. It is an attractive, drought-resistant plant. Gaura does well in a sunny setting with light, well-drained soil. Also known as wandflower, whirling butterfly, and bee blossom, gaura can range from 15 inches to 4 feet tall, but most new cultivars are bred to be compact and container-friendly. This easy-care plant is available in several varieties. It makes a beautiful addition to almost any garden. The airy texture and form of gaura make them lovely accent plants in a mixed garden border. You can plant masses of them in a wildflower garden where they will demonstrate how they got the nickname “whirling butterflies” as they dance in the breeze.
