      These elegant, clump-forming perennials are valued for their prolonged flowering period, as they will often produce airy clusters of star-like flowers from late spring to early autumn. Their nebulous form makes them ideal for unstructured planting schemes and cottage gardens, where they add a touch of movement and lightness to the border. Originating from prairies throughout North America, they thrive in moist but well drained soils where they get lots of sun, however they are tolerant of a little light shade. Supplied in 9cm pots.

      In the collection you will receive one of each of the following varieties.

    • Gaura lindheimeri 'Rosyjane':Each pure white petal has a cerise-pink, picotee edge, creating flowers with a distinctive two-tone effect. Emerging from slender, rich pink buds, their enchanting colouring means they mix very easily with pink, white and purple flowering perennials. Height to 75cm.
    • Gaura lindheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies':A graceful, hazy plant with airy wands of white, fading to pink, star-shaped flowers with distinctive long anthers like daddy long-legs, held on slender stems from May to September. This exceptionally long-flowering perennial, with slender, grey-green leaves, looks equally at home in an informal cottage-style garden or among soft grasses in a new perennial border. This variety is particularly free-flowering, drought-tolerant and will soak up the sun. Give it space, as its wispy stems will lean over other plants and pathways. Height to 75cm.
    • Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink':A graceful, hazy plant with airy spikes of bright pink, star-shaped flowers with long anthers like daddy long-legs, held high above the foliage on slender stems from May to September. This long-flowering perennial looks equally at home in an informal cottage-style garden or among soft grasses in a new perennial border. It is exceptionally drought-tolerant and will soak up the sun. Give it space, as its wispy stems will lean over. Height to 150cm.

    • Garden care: Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered, as it often takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather. Cut back and divide large colonies in spring.

There is still plenty of time to raise hardier annuals from seeds sown now and these include cosmos, zinnias and marigolds. However it's often easier to opt for ready-grown plugs of these, as well as the more-tender begonias petunias, antirrhinums and ni
