A recent introduction, Gaura lindheimeri ‘Gambit’ is a compact perennial with delightful flowers held on long graceful stems above mounds of narrow foliage.
Flowering from May all the way to September Gaura brings a wonderful splash of colour to your garden, and as it keeps on flowering right into the autumn, your borders will look magnificent, even as other summer flowering plants are fading away. With its fresh and airy look, our Gaura collection in shades of pink and white will add a delicate lightness to your planting, as its butterfly-like flowers dance in the breeze.
Foliage is a compact cushion of deep burgundy flushed young leaves that mature to dark green, with flowers buds rising on wand-like stems before bursting open into beautifully bright flowers. A light, informal plant, 'Gambit’ will fill gaps in your borders and because it’s a prairie native, it looks fabulous in wildflower of cottage style planting schemes. It also does well in pots, where its long flowering season will brighten up your patio month after month.
Easy to grow and fully winter hardy and drought tolerant, it prefers a warm spot in a light soil where it can happily grow upwards through other plants, a marvellous addition to any garden!
Supplied as a collection of 10 plug plants in 4 shades of pink and white, growing to a height and spread of 40cm:
