  • Description
    Our most popular introduction of 2014. It’s commonly called a “Butterfly Flower” due to the butterfly shaped blooms that wave back and forth in the wind. The tall spires are perfect for adding height interest to your containers, but they will grow just about anywhere.

  • Growing Guide
    Heat and drought tolerant, maintenance free.

    Sparkle White is the All American Selections winner for 2014. This gaura is listed as a perennial, but we've yet to have one survive. It blooms and blooms until frost.
