'Gambit Rose Bicolour' is a recent introduction and a new colour break that forms a compact cushion of deep burgundy-red new foliage and buds which burst into striking, neon-pink bicoloured flowers. A light, informal plant, 'Gambit Rose' quickly and easily fills gaps in borders with a haze of blossom, making it a great substitute for gypsophillia or London Pride in the garden.
Perfectly suited to a pot due to its compact size, Gaura looks great on the patio or a light balcony, so anyone can enjoy is beautiful rosy blooms. An easy plant to grow and fully winter hardy, it's a prairie native, so prefers a warm spot in a light soil where it can happily grow upwards through other plants. Give it space so that its wispy stems can lean over other plants and try not to move it as it will sulk if disturbed and withhold its fabulous blooms.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, 'Gambit Rose Bicolour' will grow to around 50cms tall so is suited to the middle of any sunny border.
