I also cut some stems of Gaura (now Oenothera lindheimeri) though it does not have a history of cutting well for me. I wanted it mostly for the long, slender stems, anyway.
Although I usually make my bouquets to be viewed from any angle, the back view of this one is just that -- the back.
Thank you to Cathy for hosting this meme! It's wonderful to follow along at Rambling in the Garden and see what others have put in vases this week!
