General Description

Lindheimer's beeblossom is a long-lived, tap-rooted, hardy perennial that is native to Texas and Louisiana. The Belleza Early Pink has an upright, airy habit, fine green foliage and tall stems lined with delicate, open, five petaled, bright pink flowers with long prominent anthers. It features well-branched flower stalks earlier in the season than most gauras. These bee and butterfly magnets appear from early summer to fall and are generally pink in bud opening to pink or white. Remove spent flower stalks to extend flowering and prevent self-sowing.

Beeblossom is tolerant of drought, heat and humidity. It prefers sites with full sun and average soil with ample drainage. Plant beeblossom in sunny perennial borders and wildflower gardens.
