Gaura - The Bride

The Bride features tall, elegant, open spikes of white, tinged pink flowers bloom in profusion, ideal for the back of borders. This hardy perennial makes for a lovely cut flower, and reaches the height of 120cm. Flowers in first year from an early sowing.

Sow indoors, from January to April, to flower the same year, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place on a warm windowsill. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, May-September, 25cm apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors to flower the following year, from May to July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 10cm apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn, spacing 25cm apart. Flowers from June to October.
