Product Information

Gaura lindheimeri ‘Siskiyou Pink’ is a compact perennial with wonderful bright pink flowers held on long graceful stems above mounds of narrow foliage.

Flowering from May all the way to September Gaura brings a wonderful splash of colour to your garden, and as it keeps on flowering right into the autumn, your borders will look magnificent, even as other summer flowering plants are fading away. With its fresh and airy look, the delicate flowers look a little like butterflies dancing in the breeze.

The foliage forms a compact cushion of dark red flushed young leaves that mature to dark green, with flowers buds rising on wand-like stems before bursting open into beautifully bright flowers. A light, informal plant, 'Siskiyou Pink’ will fill gaps in your borders and because it’s a prairie native, it looks fabulous in wildflower of cottage style planting schemes. It also does well in pots, where its long flowering season will brighten up your patio month after month.

Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' the flowers are produced through the spring and summer and are a favourite with butterflies and bees.

Easy to grow and fully winter hardy and drought tolerant, it prefers a warm spot in a light soil where it can happily grow upwards through other plants, just wonderful!

Supplied as a n an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

  • Trimming off stems with spent flowers will encourage production of new ones.
  • The richer soil the more flowers you get so feed regularly with a multipurpose feed such as our Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Feed when in bloom.
  • Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered, as it takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Gaura lindheimeri

  • Plants prefer moist, well-drained soil in full sun.
  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • When plants are large enough to plant out, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds.
  • Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.

Aftercare Advice for your Gaura

  • Plants are drought tolerant once established and removing faded flowers will encourage a longer period of blooming.

Pruning Advice for Gaura

  • Naturally compact plants, plants just need faded flowers removing to keep them tidy.
  • Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered, as it takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather.
