This gaura is a big improvement over others I have purchased in the past. It seemed to take off overnight and is gorgeous even when not blooming! I put mine in a planter and found that cutting it back early makes it fuller and bloom better. All of my Springhill plants are thriving while plants ordered from other companies start out fine and then just seem to give up. Thank you for the quality you offer.
