Gaura ‘Passionate Rainbow Petite’

Gaura lindheimeri ‘Passionate Rainbow Petite’ has the same unique flowers and foliage as ‘Passionate Rainbow’ and now has a more dwarf and compact habit. The narrow, tricolor variegated green leaves are bordered in creamy white. Early spring foliage is burgundy red that matures to green, with cream accents and pink stems. Soft pink flowers with magenta centers bloom late spring to fall. The pink pigment from the flowers also gives the foliage a reddish-pink overlay in full sun. Flower formation differs from other Gauras: the pink flowers form at the tips and on side branches rather than on long wispy stems. Exceptionally long flowering and great garden performance.
