Don't expect to see Biennial Guara bloom the first year you plant it. Flowers and fruit won't produce until the second season, but when it does, it's worth the wait. Blooms start off white and as they age, turn a faint shade of pink. Classified as a biennial, this will typically reseed itself and grow for years to come.

Also called Oenothera gaura or Biennial Beeblossom, this species can be considered "untidy" or a little messy, but that never stopped a pollinator before. If the messy garden look is your thing, this fits in perfectly!

Reaching heights of 3 to 6 feet, Biennial Gaura favors shadier and wetter areas and blooms anywhere from June to October. Typically, it often appears during the dog days of summer and provides that much needed late summer nectar.
