Gaura Siskiyou White
Creating a charming and distinctive display in your garden could not be simpler with the use of these elegant and hardy perennials! Long, arching stems bear masses of four-petalled flowers for an extensive period beginning in spring and continuing right through to winter. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just a beginner - G. 'Siskiyou Pink' and G. 'Siskiyou White' offer great rewards for minimal effort. The unusual name 'Siskiyou' (pron. 'Sis-key-you') derives from a native American Indian name given to the range of mountains which straddles the border between southern Oregon and northern California, USA. Not native to this region, however, the name 'Siskiyou Pink' is derived from 'Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery' where the first pink seedling was discovered amongst a garden display of the white flowering parent plant, Gaura lindheimeri. The genus (or 'family') name of Gaura stems form the Greek work meaning 'superb' whilst its common name of 'butterfly bush' refers to the four petalled flowers with long stamens which, when fluttering in a breeze, mimic the appearance of these delicate and attractive insects. Both names aptly describe the beauty of this unusual and versatile plant
