Gaura ‘Passionate Rainbow’

Gaura lindheimeri ‘Passionate Rainbow’ boasts both unique flowers and foliage. 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. The upright, erect form keeps a tall dense habit and also retains a neat appearance throughout the winter months. In the landscape, it has tested to be more compact and more tightly flowering than a typical Gaura.
