    • Hi Joanne. Yes, Gaura. They are not always hardy here so I am taking my luck, but many of mine were grown from seed this year and did as well as the small plants I bought. πŸ˜ƒ

      • Your plants look beautiful and healthy, Cathy. πŸ™‚ I planted one Gaura about a year ago, then when it finished flowering it almost disappeared. I thought I’d lost it for sure, so bought some more this spring. Not only are the new plants flourishing, but last year’s plant is growing even better than last year now. Perhaps they need a slightly warmer climate to grow well, although it looks like yours are very happy. πŸ™‚

        • I had one for about four years in my old garden but a very cold winter finished that one off. I think good drainage helps them overwinter. I wouldn’t want to be without them now so will always sow a few seeds in future just in case! πŸ˜‰

  2. Love seeing that echinacea again. I’ve never thought to grow gaura from seed. Maybe I’ll look for some seeds and give that a try. I have only one that has survived more than a couple years.

  4. I forgot to sow gaura this year Cathy but must do so next year. I love the way they dance in a breeze. No flowers from me today as I got carried away planting bulbs. We’re predicted fog and frost towards the end of the week so I’m rushing to get my tulips in. With catch up tomorrow.

    • Oh, a good job done then. Thank goodness mine are all in as it is barely above freezing here during the day. Yes, Gaura are perfect for a breezy spot (which is almost everywhere in my garden!) and I will also sow some more in spring… I have got my seeds already! πŸ˜‰
