Gaura Sparkle White
2014 AAS Bedding Plant Award Winner

Sparkle White gaura will bring a touch of airy elegance to the garden with its long slender stems sporting a large number of dainty white flowers tinged with a pink blush. This beauty is perfect mass planted in sun-drenched landscape beds, in groupings with other perennials or in larger containers. Home gardeners will appreciate that this season-long bloomer also has excellent heat tolerance and a more uniform flowering habit than other seed gauras. Commercial growers can utilize ‘Sparkle White’ as a first-year flowering perennial or as an annual, showing its wide range of uses. Sparkle White is also a recipient of Europe's FleuroSelect Gold Medal award for garden performance.
