Plant of the Week 07/09/2021
Whirling Butterflies Guara Lindheimeri Zone 5-9
Dark green, thin-leaved foliage (think rosemary) provides the base to tall, lanky stems whose tips become covered with wispy, whitish-pink flowers that dance in the wind. This plant gets its name from the resemblance of butterflies fluttering around on a beautiful summer day.
This plant does great in the ground or in pots! Plant in full sun. Water regularly until established, then water occasionally. Drought and heat resistant. A moderate grower that can reach 3' tall and wide. Blooms from late spring through fall. Prune spent flowers to promote more blooms.
