Guara lindheimeri 'Siskiyou'
- Heat loving perennial
- Beautiful floating pink flowers
- Drought and cold tolerant
- Used in desert landscapes as accent, in rock gardens, and transitional areas in tropical settings
Fluffy waves of deep pink flowers flutter above the red-tinged foliage of the Guara lindheimeri'Siskiyou', commonly referred to as Whirling Butterflies. One of the most beautiful and versatile plants are perfect for mixed perennial borders, containers and makes a good cut flower in the garden. Their versatility is on display during the warm summer months as they tolerate drought, heat, and humidity extremely well. During warm months removing spent flower stems will encourage faster rebloom. Prune hard in early spring to keep Guara nice and full.
Just What the Wife WantedMy neighbor has a few of these planted in her front yard and my wife loved them. After talking to the neighbors about them, she told me she came to Moon Valley. I too went to Moon Valley and had them plant a few of these and some other flowers in my backyard. Easy and fast. thanks!
