Gaura lindheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies'

Wandflower-White

Selected for its compact habit and increased flower production, this perennial is a blooming machine. Pink buds open from tall, arching stems to reveal pure white flowers that blush pink as they age and do not reseed. Its upright stems make it an excellent thriller for combination containers and landscapes.
