Gaura comes from the same family as the evening primrose, and has the same characteristic blossoms that last for just one day, opening at evening for pollination by nocturnal insects. The genus name Gaura comes from the Greek word for “superb.” This native wildflower was first described and classified in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus in his landmark publication Species Plantarum, which recorded the first official botanical plant names and began modern binomial nomenclature.
