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 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant, growing to 80cm tall and 60cm in width.
