Gaura Pink, specifically the cultivar Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink', is a charming and resilient perennial known for its vibrant pink flowers and graceful, wand-like stems. Native to the southern United States, this variety has gained popularity in gardens for its drought tolerance, long blooming period, and the subtle beauty it adds to any landscape setting.

Growing to about 2 to 4 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide, 'Siskiyou Pink' forms a mounded clump of green foliage from which emerge tall, slender stems. The stems are adorned with loose panicles of small, star-shaped pink flowers that seem to float above the foliage, creating an effect reminiscent of fluttering butterflies. The plant starts blooming in late spring and continues through to fall, providing a continuous display of color.

Adapted to full sun, Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink' thrives in well-draining soil and is exceptionally drought-tolerant once established, making it an ideal choice for xeriscapes and water-wise gardens. While it prefers a regular watering schedule, it can tolerate periods of dryness, making it suitable for a variety of garden situations.

In landscaping, 'Siskiyou Pink' is often used in perennial borders, cottage gardens, or as a specimen plant. Its airy and delicate appearance adds elegance to garden designs, and its long flowering period makes it a valuable addition to any garden. The plant's ability to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies further enhances its appeal.

Overall, Gaura Pink 'Siskiyou Pink' is a versatile and attractive perennial, ideal for adding movement, color, and interest to sunny garden areas. Its low maintenance requirements, adaptability to a range of soil conditions, and resistance to pests and drought make it a favored choice for gardeners looking to create vibrant and sustainable landscapes.
