Gaura lin. ‘Whirling Butterflies’
‘Whirling Butterflies’ features arching red stems, pink flower buds and 4-petaled snow white flowers (1″ diameter) which appear in long, terminal, wand-like panicles above the foliage over a very long late spring to autumn bloom period. Flowers open only a few at a time, and dance in the wind like butterflies, hence the cultivar name. Typically grows 2-3′ tall. Differs from the species Gaura lindheimeri by being more compact and more floriferous with flowers being a brighter white. Narrow lance-shaped leaves (1-3″ long) are sometimes spotted with maroon.
