I think I have the right Gaura. On a riverside. Five feet tall, narrow lance-shaped leaves.
I think this is G. pubescens but because of it's smaller size (8 inches) was not quite sure. I think it's not happy. A tree had fallen down and there is more light coming in. It's also the only one in the vicinity. We don't see many of these. Not bloomed yet.
Smooth Solomon's Seal, I think. Could someone comment - thanks!
