Do you like flowering perennials?
I do. I enjoy their soft texture, flowers and the pollinators that come to enjoy their flowers.
Today, I’d like to share with one of my favorite perennials that I have growing in my garden.
Gaura lindheimeri is a drought tolerant perennial that produces small, delicate flowers that resemble butterflies floating on the air.
Available in white and pink colors, they are grown as a perennial or used as an annual in colder climates. This is one of the few plants that you can find growing in a desert garden and in more temperate climates such as the Midwest and Northeast.
This lovely perennial deserves to be seen more in the garden and I’d love to share more about gaura with you and why you’ll want to add it to your landscape in my latest Houzz article.
