'Crimson Butterflies' is a dwarf gaura with deep pink flowers over red foliage.
Masses of pink flowers on reddish stemmed spikes with dark crimson and green foliage. These are compact, long-blooming plants with good drought tolerance. Like the brief visits of butterflies, these plants grace the nursery for only a short time and then they’re gone (in the trunks of people’s cars!).
