|Bees of all sizes love Gaura|
|Prior to trying out the slope, Gaura happily bloomed in a large container planting|
Amsonia hubrichtii is sited just above it on the slope. It flowers lightly for me, but the fall foliage is a delightful golden color and as it ages/dries the leaves curl. (Post: Amsonia after the fall)
Yes, the Garlic Chives are thuggish, but, it really does look great and the pollinators love it. Just remember to cut the seed heads off when the flower dries up or they will spread every where. I do mean every where!
I am really happy with the trio.
Fingers crossed that there's enough drainage to keep the Gauras alive this winter.
Please note that Gaura has a new Genus name~Oenothera! Now they shall be known as the ex-Gauras!
