Gaura lindheimeri ‘Colso’ pp#14815 “Sunny Butterflies”

    In 1994, employees of Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery in Medford, Oregon spotted a pink flowering sport on a white-flowering seedling of Gaura lindheimeri. Three years later, 'Siskiyou Pink' was one of the hottest plants on the West Coast and it is beginning to gain recognition on the East Coast as well

    Gaura lindheimeri ‘Colso’ pp#14815 “Sunny Butterflies”
    copf is a recent offspring of 'Siskiyou Pink'. Developed by Mr. Howard Bentely of Plant Growers Australia, of Victoria, Australia. This New Cultivar is more compact, than the parent and is much more compact than the other variegated cultivar Gaura 'Corries Gold'. The pink flowers on this cultivar are held upright on sturdy green stems. The white edged variegation with abundant pink flowers makes this New Cultivar an ideal plant for the perennial garden or as a potted highlight for the outdoor living space.
