We were at Lowe's yesterday Not for flowers and these were calling my name.

This is Pink Fountain Gaura , butterfly and hummingbirds like it, height 24-26 in. spreads 18in. hardiness Zone 5
looking this up it was selling for 10.99 and Lowe's had it for 3.99


And the ever ( have to have) Blue Salvia and Rabbit proof.

Love the red flowers. I've had the yellow and red blanket flowers (I think that is what they were) and they really add color to a garden. Good buys.
