'Snowstorm' is a vigorous gaura for Minnesota with abundant, continuous pink and white flowers. It flourishes in both cool and warm locations, even in extreme heat and drought. A hardy seedling was selected in 2000 and was crossed with plants gathered on collection trips to Texas, Mexico, California and the Dakotas, resulting in a fragrant, prolific plant. Tough though it may be, 'Snowstorm' is now marketed as an annual, and will be used in future breeding efforts toward a truly winter-hardy gaura.
