Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Gaura lindheimeri 'Crimson Butterflies' is distinguished by the gorgeous colour of its dark green-red lance-shaped leaves which provide a beautiful complement to its deep pink flowers.

Unlike taller Gauras, which tend to flop and require support, ‘Crimson Butterflies’ has a compact, bushy and upright habit, making it suitable for small gardens, front-of-border positions and even container growing. It boasts a long flowering season, bearing masses of dreamy, wand-like panicles of fluttering deep pink flowers from summer to autumn. Drought tolerant once established, this airy and informal perennial associates beautifully with ornamental grasses. Height and spread: 50cm (20in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Gaura plants in a sunny position on moist, well drained soil. Although Gauras prefer full sun and a moist soil, they will also tolerate partial shade and drought once established.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season until Gaura plants are fully established. In autumn, cut back faded Gaura flower stems and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant. Divide clumps of overcrowded plants in spring.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
