GAURA lindheimeri ‘Siskiyou Pink’

Whirling Butterflies –

0744North American wildflower now widely grown across the continent. Plants bloom for many weeks with loose sprays of flowers. Deadhead to promote bushier growth and more flower stems. The deep tap roots make the plants drought tolerant. They don’t care to be transplanted. Heat, humidity, drought tolerant. Blooms spring to fall.
In the breeze, the flowers move constantly, looking like a cloud of small butterflies.
Bright pink flowers resemble tiny butterflies fluttering above the foliage from early summer into fall. As the flowers age, they turn a deeper, rosier pink. This plant forms a compact mound of dark green leaves that are often splashed with red.
