Gaura 'Passionate Blush'

full sun
height 80cm
spread 80cm

The PASSIONATE series of Gauras, offer us an upright, erect form which not only keeps a tall dense habit, but also retains a neat appearance throughout the winter months. This is unlike the other Gauras in the market place before the PASSIONATE Series was released.

The prolific display of pink flowers are borne on shorter than usual stems and will add colour to garden borders for an extensive season with main flushes occurring during the warmer months although spot flowering may also occur during winter months.

There are three varieties in the PASSIONATE Series. The dense, upright habit coupled with burgundy colouring in the new growth makes 'Passionate Blush' and 'Passionate Pink' terrific specimen shrubs, as well as offering the potential for creating an eye-catching, informal hedge. 'Passionate Rainbow' also offers ornamental foliage but differs in that foliage is variegated giving a more 'golden' appearance. All are easy to grow and require little maintenance for a great and long lasting floral show!

Gauras are easy to grow. They tolerate a wide range of soils from sandy to clay based although performs best in a well drained, moist and fertile soil. Cold and frost tolerant. Will grow in hot, dry conditions, however, mulching and occasional deep watering during extended dry periods is recommended. Gauras are easy to prune too - simply trim off up to half of the plants overall size in early spring to promote flower production and to maintain a neat shape. A light prune to remove spent flower stems in mid summer can extend flowering into winter. An application of slow release fertiliser during early spring would also be beneficial.
