Description

Maintenance Notes:

Each flowering stem adds blooms, continuously to the end of the spike. As time goes on, the flowering stems can get rather long and tangled. Although deadheading isn’t necessary for continued blooming you may find that you prefer to trim back some of the flowering stems at some point in mid-summer. This will encourage new flowering stems to emerge. Flowers will be closer to the foliage and the plant will look tidier. If you choose, you can trim all the flower stems off at once, however, you should then expect a 2 to 3 week period without flowers.

Lovely in landscapes or as thrillers in combination containers, gauras add height, wispy texture, and movement to the design. Their graceful stems bear non-stop blooms through the heat of summer.
