Gaura lindheimeri ‘Freefolk Rosy’, selected at Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants (UK) is a variegated form of Gaura lindheimeri ‘Rosyjane’, originally a sport from the parent plant, which has been checked for stability over several years. The leaves are cream, green and purple variegated. It has the same picotee pink and white flowers as the parent and the same growing habit. It should be an excellent new garden plant, ideal for borders or containers. “Combine with grasses or mixed border perennials for impact”, recommends the nursery.
Gaura lindheimeri ‘Freefolk Rosy’ will be exhibited at the upcoming Chelsea Flower Show 2014 (May 20-24) in the UK.
This Gaura will be available from Hardy’s. After the launch at Chelsea and after Plant Breeders’ Rights are granted it also will be available at Dutch perennial nursery Rijnbeek & Zoon.
