Lovely, Gaura, Trekkingkitty.

I have recently bought my first Gaura.

Any advice on what to do with it over winter, etc. very welcome.
Please put comment under mine here, and then I'll find it.

Oh, and welcome to GoY, Enjoy.

Hi everyone. Thanks for the warm welcome. I was looking for info on how to overwinter the gaura when I found this site so I'm sorry I can't give any advice on how to care for it. As far as I've been told from people on another Gardening group I post on it's a plant that might be a little bit finicky. One person said that although it's a perennial it only comes back once and that is in the following year. I'm planning to insulate around it with the fall leaves when they drop and hoping for the best. This site looks really neat. Thanks again for the hello's. I guess I best get back to work now. See you guys later. :)

I asked a question once on whether I should plant my Gaura in the ground or keep it in a pot in shelter for winter . I was told that it will grow perfectly happily in the ground and is quite hardy.

Thanks, Hywel.
But if I follow your advice, and then my Gaura dies over winter,
I'll be sending my Welsh Terrier all the way to Wales to get you. LOL

[ Truth is, 'Bonsai' the Welsh Terrier is so gentle,
he'd just wag his tail at you, and say 'hello' in Welsh]

Okay, Hywel, please tell me, what's Welsh for 'hello' ? LOL

I posted a photo so you could see the leaves of the variegated gaura.

I was very sad to see that this gaura did not come back this spring. I had been advised it was a tender perennial. I guess too tender for my area.
