Gaura is a perennial with extra long blooming season and which requires very little or no care at all. It emerges in late spring with deep burgundy red leaves that turn green in summer. It can multiply previous year's size in no time and become almost three times as large. I became fond of all gauras from the BELLEZA™ series ever since I saw them first. They are colourful, dense, and flower profusely. They were bred by Nils Klemm from Selecta One in Stuttgart, Germany, a man behind more than 600 patents not only for plants but also for cultivation and breeding methods he put together during his 22 years in the company. In 2021, after a recovery from an insidious illness he announced his retirement from the Selecta One leaving it in the hands of his twin brother Per Klemm.

BELLEZA™ Dark Pink is a compact gaura variety producing rich pink flowers which appear in profusion atop slender, 25-30 cm tall stems which look like a bouquet of freshly cut flowers. Gaura is a perennial with extra long blooming season and which requires very little or no care at all. It emerges in late spring with deep burgundy red leaves turning green in summer when it matures to a dense and bushy clump. BELEZA™ Dark Pink was granted only a Canadian patent No. 2860 in 2007.

We noticed that if the plant is frequently fed it is big and beautiful but tends to mature more quickly and may become very short-lived and die prematurely. If your soil is reasonably fertile we recommend only one feeding - just before the buds begin to form, if you want to prolong its life.

In the wild gaura lives in naturally moist lands where it thrives. In the garden you need to provide equally moist but well drained soil in full sun, yet it tolerates summer drought once established. In spring cut back to about 3-5 cm above ground level after all frosts (mid-late April in C.E.). It is hardy to about -25 °C (USDA zone 6) and mulching is recommended in areas with long-lasting frost without snow.
