Whirling Butterflies

Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink'

It’s easy to see how Whirling Butterflies gets its common name, one look at this soft and pretty plant blowing in the wind evokes images of pink butterflies dancing along the thin green stems. Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink' is a native North American wildflower and while it looks delicate, it’s actually a hardy plant that adds unique texture and beauty into any landscape. The 'Siskiyou Pink' cultivar is one of the top choices for both homeowners and landscapers alike, and we love to plant these versatile plants for use in mixed perennial borders, as an accent, and they look amazing in rock gardens or transitional areas!

Pink Gaura care is quite easy, they have a moderate growth rate and love to grow in an area that gets plenty of full sun exposure, and once established they have low to moderate watering needs. Since they are heat and drought tolerant, they are an excellent choice for planting into any waterwise landscape! Some people love to cut the flowers and use them in flower arrangements too!
