More compact and floriferous than other gaura, with whiter flowers too
Gaura Whirling Butterflies is a showy perennial wildflower offering late spring through fall interest. With a long blooming season, more floriferous than other Gaura lindheimeri, this cultivar sets pink flower buds that unfurl into 4-petaled, snow white flowers. Borne along thin, arching red stems, the flowers hover around the bush like butterflies, beckoning to butterflies and hummingbirds in the garden. They make airy bouquets and add delicate texture to floral arrangements. A gaura lindheimeri variety, commonly called gaura or beeblossom, Whirling Butterflies is an herbaceous plant with a compact, upright, clump-forming habit of lance-shaped, stemless leaves, sometimes spotted with maroon. Shown to best effect when grouped or massed, this graceful plant creates an ethereal display in borders, mixed beds, and containers. Easy to grow and low maintenance, Gaura Whirling Butterflies prefers full sun and sandy, loamy, well-drained soils. Beeblossom tolerates heat, humidity, and some drought. It is deer and rabbit resistant and virtually disease and pest free. Deadheading spent flower spikes prolongs blooming. The genus name, Gaura, comes from the Greek gauros, meaning superb, and the specific epithet honors the Texas plant collector Ferdinand Jacob Lindheimer (1801-1879). A native plant, Gaura Whirling Butterflies is indigenous to Texas and Louisiana. Native plants are not only beautiful but also environmentally friendly. Naturally adapted to the climate and soil conditions of the region, they thrive without fertilizers or extra watering, once established. They also act as natural pest controls, reducing the need for pesticides in the garden. Landscaping with native plants promotes biodiversity and provides shelter and quality food for wildlife and pollinators, bringing gardens to life.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.
