where to get pink gaura seeds

I would like to grow gaura from seed, particularly the various pink and darker shades, but the seed catalogues seem fixated on the white variety.  Does anyone know if it is possible to get seed of the pink ones, or will I just have to buy them as plants.  My existing plant has died in the summer heatwave ion France.


  • The pinlk ones are probably hybrids that won't come true from seed. Apparently they grow easily from cuttings if you can get hold of a good plant to start with. I shall try that next year, so thanks for askingimage

    Jardinerie Koeman has pink plants for €2.95 each and does mail order in France.  Google will find it.

  • Thank you both for your helpful replies.  I spend time in my gardens in both England and France and had hoped to be able to raise a batch of plants from seed whilst in England (where I have better facilities) ready to take over and plant out in France.  That price though looks to be amazingly good value - I'll have to search it out.  Thank you.
