 Gaura Ballerina White 

A striking bloom of colourful white star shaped flowers, and dark green stems. Gaura is great for mixed containers and are fabulous when massed outside in the garden. Excellent for cut flowers gives these ballerina Gaura an extra bonus, along with being attractive for butterflies. A low maintenance plant also known as butterfly Gaura or wand flower.

Gaura is such an overlooked group of plants. They flower for such a long time and can cope with everything the British weather will throw at it.

 Gaura lindheimeri 

About the Gaura 'Family': Gaura is a genus of flowering herbaceous plants from the Onagraceae family. Most species are perennial with sturdy roots and form dense thickets. They produce spreading, flowering stems which can be up to 2m tall, leafy on the lower half and leafless on the upper stem. Mostly the flowers have four petals and are zygomorphic, with all the petals pointing upwards. Some species are regarded as noxious weeds but species such as G. lindhermeri are widely grown as ornamental garden plants.

Pot sizes explained

At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
