This native wildflower has striking scarlet 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,” while the Latin species name “coccinea” means “scarlet.” Noted English botanist Thomas Nuttall (1786-1859) gathered the first specimen of Scarlet Gaura on one of his numerous exploratory expeditions through North America, and a fellow botanist named Frederick Traugott Pursh (1774-1820) described the species for science in 1814.
