Description

Prepare for a long summer of flower heaven by planting Gaura 'Siskiyou Pink'. This incredible perennial effortlessly goes on flaunting its flower power over such a generously long season, there's no doubt that it earns a good space in the border. Erupting into a mass of dainty pink blooms in early summer, you can look forward to the hazy pink cloud of gently whirling flower stems persevering until early autumn. The effect is airy, floaty and altogether dreamy.    

For a plant which offers so much, it's amazing how easy-going and generally trouble-free Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink' is. It likes a free-draining soil and can tolerate a fair amount of drought once established. Gaura or Lindheimer's beeblossom is also winter hardy so there’s no need to worry about it getting cold, and it will grow back as a larger clump each year until it’s reached its full established size of around 1-1.5m. This plant is also known as Oenothera lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink' (G)

Other information

    • Soak the Gaura 'Siskiyou Pink' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting

    • Plant your "Lindheimer's beeblossom" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed. Some varieties are a length of root which should be planted lengthways and shallowly (1-2cm deep).

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
