#ProPlantTips for Care
Gaudi Pink Wand is native to the south and thus, appreciates a warm, sunny spot in the garden. It thrives best in full sun and well drained soil.
Gaudi will do just fine in partial shade. However, for the best display, you’ll definitely want to plant in full sun so it can bask in the rays all day long.
Many growing zones outside of the far south often use this plant as more of an annual, due to its love for warmer weather.
Feel free to cut back the wands to half their height halfway as flowering declines in midsummer to encourage bushier growth and a second burst of blossoms! These can also be cut back in the early spring before new growth appears.
Maintaining Gaudi just quite easy! Used to thriving in the hot and dry temperatures of the south, this specimen is just fine with little water. It’s quite a drought-tolerant little plant!
