    Gaura lindheimeri known by its common name ‘Bee Blossom’ is from the Onagraceae family of plants. A native to North America, it can be found in Texas and Louisiana and as far south as the central regions of Mexico.

    Gaura lindheimeri was scarcely known in normal production nurseries and with the exception of the cultivar Whirling Butterflies was scarcely seen. That began to change in 1994 with the introduction of Gaura ‘Siskiyou Pink’, 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.

    Now, Mr. Baldassare Mineo of Siskiyou Rare Plants Nursery introduces Gaura "Passionate Pink"™ to follow his extraordinary introduction, Gaura ‘Siskiyou Pink’. In this New Introduction the cross was a combination of ‘Siskiyou Pink’ and the cultivar Dauphine.

    This New Cultivar is more upright and compact than either parent, it has a red to green foliage, in full sunshine the foliage is much redder than green. The shiny pink flowers are held above the foliage and put on a spectacular flower show throughout the Spring, Summer and early Fall months. Gaura "Passionate Pink" grows to 30inches in height and 24inches in width.

    A real must have for the Perennial Garden.

    The U.S. Patent Office has now assigned Gaura lindheimeri 'Crimson Butterflies' the Patent Number 13189.
