Gaura lindheimeri 'Summer Breeze' (Onagraceae)
A seed strain developed by Jelitto to improve on the hardiness of this widely used species. 'Summer Breeze' is hardy to zone 5, and is a particularly large and robust variety, topping out at an impressive 4'. An airy and open "see-through" plant, Bee Blossom thrives in well-drained soils in full sun. From early summer to frost, long arching wands are lined with pinkish-white blooms. For best results, don't fertilize or overwater this xeric Southwest native. Perfect for coastal areas where heat, sun and sandy soils reign.
