Gaura 'Papillon'


Gaura 'Papillon' (Gaura lindheimeri (Gaura))

This is a short, compact plant...so different from other Gauras I have.

I always think of these white Gauras as "happy" plants (don't know why).
Has it proven hardy, or is it a new one this year?

I like this, even better if it's a smaller one :-)

It's new this year. Meanie - I found it at a new Nursery who only have a small selection of plants, but always something different. They can only open 3 days a week while they get established.

It's lovely, isn't it, G!

Yes... gauras can be a bit unpredictable....
was it easily available to purchase ?

No - it came from a new Nursery where two sisters started a new business earlier this year. They can only open three days a week until business picks up, but they stock unusual plants. It's always very tempting there. I think they're going to close down for a month or more after Christmas - they're selling home-made decorations at the moment.

Let's hope they make a good success of their business :o)

Oh, I do agree, Tt. It's quite a way from here, but well worth it when I do manage a visit. I have my name on their e-mail list, and all credit to them - they're running all kinds of 'special' events, like talks and visits from tool -sharpeners to get people in.

That has to be the vital thing - once people get to hear about them, they should do well. They have the will to succeed, that's for sure.

Visits from tool-sharpeners ...
that's very useful ...
get all your tools sorted in one go !

It was when I was very unwell, or I'd have been down there like a shot! I thought that was a real brainwave on their part. I hope they get him back again next year.
