Intermountain White Wand Flower

Gaura (syn Oenothera) lindheimeri 'Intermountain Beauty'

Plant Details:

Plant Type: Perennial
Plant Family: Onagraceae
Plant Description: A selection that was discovered naturalizing here at Conservation Garden Park. With impressive spikes loaded with pure white flowers that bloom all summer long, this Intermountain Gaura is a beautiful companion plant for other perennials.


Maintenance Type: Perennial - Herbaceous
Plant Care: Perennial - Herbaceous (soft-stemmed plants that die back in winter and regrow in spring): Remove spent blooms to promote rebloom later. Some plants tend to flop over after the first bloom and attempt to regrow from the base; in these cases, the old stems can be cut away in summer. As plants become dormant in the fall, remove dead leaves and stems.
