beeblossom Interesting Notes

"An introduction by Mr. Baldassare Mineo and his company Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery, Medford, Oregon, U.S.A. Gaura 'Siskiyou Pink' was found as a pink flowering sport of a white flowering seedling of Gaura lindheimeri. Mr. Mineo and the cultivar 'Siskyou Pink' can claim responsibility for the introduction for the genus Gaura to mainstream perennial growers around the world." - Pride of Place Plants

Gaura is from the Greek gauros, meaning superb.

Gaura lindheimeri is named for German immigrant and "Father of Texas Botany" Ferdinand Jacob Lindheimer, who explored Texas for plants, helping found New Braunfels where he settled and became editor of the local newspaper in 1852.
