Stratosphere™ Pink Picotee Gaura | Proven Winners

Wands of pink flowers hover like butterflies over dark green foliage May through September; heat and drought tolerant. 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.
