Product Description

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:

  • 2 x Bicolour – delightful pale pink flowers edged in magenta.
  • 2 x Pink – deliciously light, candyfloss pink.
  • 3 x Rose - panicles of deep pink blooms.
  • 3 x White – pure white, star shaped flowers.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Trimming off stems with spent flowers will encourage production of new ones.
  • The richer soil the more flowers you get so feed regularly with a multipurpose feed such as our Blooming FastSuperior Soluble Feed when in bloom.
  • Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered, as it takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Gaura lindheimeri

  • Plants prefer moist, well-drained soil in full sun.
  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using 9cm pots, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.

The Gaura plants arrived with all their leaves brown and although I kept them to see it they would revive from there roots. Therefore they obviously arrived dead and I am greatly disappointed.
