Gaura lindheimeri is named after the Texas plant collector Ferdinand Jacob Lindheimer. Gaura stems from the Greek work gauros, which means superb. This is in reference to the stunning flowers that bloom in spring. Siskiyou Pink Wandflower was introduced into the Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery, located in Medford, Oregon.
Snow White in plant form! The stunningly pure white blooms sprout off vibrant red stems, a beautiful color combination for any landscape. Watch as the blooms start to open as they dance in the wind, similar to that of butterflies. Bloom time is extended, spanning from late spring into the fall. This gaura differs from others because Whirling Butterflies is a compact character that produces an abundance of bright white flowers.

How to Grow
Wandflowers are tap-rooted plants that need good draining soil; it's a plant requirement! Soil preference for gaura is loamy, sandy located in full sun. Since gaura is a tap-rooted plant, it tolerates some drought, heat, and even humidity. If soil is too rich, the stems may become skinny and fall over. Leave the spent flower heads to allow for self-seeding or prune after flowering, and do not be afraid to cut back up to half of the plant itself.
