What is the plant
Oenothera lindheimeri, formerly Gaura lindheimeri, and commonly known as Lindheimer's beeblossom, white gaura, pink gaura, Lindheimer's clockweed, and Indian feather, is a species of Oenothera. The perennial plant is native to Louisiana and Texas.
Gaura lindheimeri, commonly called gaura, is a herbaceous clump-forming perennial that is native to Texas and Louisiana. It grows to as much as 5' tall on stems clad with spoon-shaped to lanceolate leaves (to 3" long). Pinkish buds along wiry, erect, wand-like stems open to white flowers which slowly fade to pink. Flowers appear in long, open, terminal panicles and open only a few at a time. Narrow, lance-shaped, stemless leaves (1-3" long) are occasionally spotted with maroon. The genus name Gaura comes from the Greek gauros meaning "superb" in reference to the beautiful flowers. Specific epithet honors Ferdinand Jacob Lindheimer (1801-1879), Texas plant collector.
