Gaura (Gaura lindheimeri) is a wonderful drought tolerant perennial that can reach 3 to 4 feet tall. Every 6 months you should trim your gaura by 50% with a hedge trimmer. Here in San Diego, the best time to trim the gaura is in July and January. However, the trimming can be done any time the flowering at the end of the stems starts to dwindle.
