Gaura is an herbaceous perennial that grows in a loose, bushy clump 2-4ft tall with a spread of 2-3ft. The stems are slender and wiry, and covered with tiny hairs. The leaves are spoon shaped, with toothed margins. The flowers are produced above the foliage on erect spikes, that continue to elongate throughout the extended blooming period of late spring until autumn.

This is a plant for hot climates and dry soils.

Gaura does best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade.

It is tolerant of drought. It has a long taproot and requires a well-drained soil.

Propagation: White gaura is easy to grow from seed, and usually will self sow. You also can divide the clumps in spring to start new plants.
