Gaura lindheimeri ’Cool Breeze’

The origin of ’Cool Breeze’ began with a keen eye and a single offspring from a production field of 3,000 typical gauras. This selection was used as the starting point for our breeding work.

The wild species, gaura lindheimeri, has come a long way from its roots in Texas and Louisiana, but its prospects for garden glory across the temperate world were recognized early. The Greek name gauros means somehow superb. We wouldn’t argue otherwise. Pure white, vegetatively-grown gauras exist in the trade, but ’Cool Breeze’ is the first seed-grown strain available.
