Gorgeous Gaura

Do you like tough, carefree plants that bloom for a looooong time (no deadheading required)? Well, you might want to take a close look at Gaura lindheimeri 'Siskiyou Pink'.

Per this bloom chart from Missouri Botanical Garden (one of my favorite gardening information sources), Siskiyou Pink typically starts blooming around the end of May and lasts until the beginning of November!

For more on Siskiyou Pink Gaura, check out this detailed description, also by Missouri Botanical Garden.

I bought these two Gaura (plus one more that is not shown on the video, but is thriving just as well as these) from Bluestone Perennials.
