"Gaura 'Siskiyou Pink' typically grows 2.5-3' tall on rigid, wiry stems. Features 4-petaled, butterfly-like flowers which emerge rose pink from deep maroon buds. Flowers appear in open panicles, blooming several at a time over a long spring to autumn bloom time. Narrow, lance-shaped, stalkless leaves (to 3" long) are mottled with maroon." -- Missouri Botanical Garden
"'Siskiyou Pink' prefers well-drained, sandy, loamy soil. Flowering stems may become leggy and flop, particularly when grown in rich soils or too much shade. Plants can benefit from close planting or support from adjacent perennial.
Can tolerate heat, humidity and drought. Best used for xeriscaping, perennial gardens or naturalized areas. Can be propagated by seed or division after 2-3 years.
Deadhead during the flowering season to prolong bloom length and cut back in early spring for flush new growth and to control size. May self seed in autumn if spent flowers are not cut back."
