Gaura lindheimeri Rosyjane



Gaura lindheimeri ‘Rosyjane’is the very first bicoloured gaura and one whose unique colouring is captivating gardeners. Each pure white petal has a cerise-pink,picotee edge, creating flowers with a distinctive two-tone effect. Emerging from slender, rich pink buds, their enchanting colouring means they mix very easily with pink, white and purple flowering perennials. It was spotted at Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants down the road in Hampshire and named for Rosy Hardy famous for her Gold Medal winning exhibits at RHS shows around the country. At 75cm tall ‘Rosyjane' is taller than many recent varieties, some of which are rather dumpy and characterless, so it retains an appealing airy elegance. Use ether in large containers, or in sunny well drained border where it will come back year after year.

For the purposes of definition, late summer flowering perennials may be described as plants that reliably produce flowers or that have as their main feature of interest (an architectural silhouette, or attractive seed heads for instance) which can positively contribute to the garden after midsummer's day on a year in year out basis.

There is little doubt that the climate is changing,for whatever reason, and that seasons are not as distinct. In Britain the autumn season is lengthening and often there is relatively frost free weather up until December. The majority of gardens in Britain look at their finest in the spring and early summer, leaving many gardens looking relatively lacklustre after June has passed. The use of these late summer flowering perennials in the garden should renew inspiration in the months of the year when the shadows are lengthening.
