How to Grow
Wandflowers are tap-rooted plants that need good draining soil; it's a plant requirement! Soil preference for gaura is loamy, sandy located in full sun. Since gaura is a tap-rooted plant, it tolerates some drought, heat, and even humidity. If soil is too rich, the stems may become skinny and fall over. Leave the spent flower heads to allow for self-seeding or prune after flowering, and do not be afraid to cut back up to half of the plant itself.
