I received this as a trade and was told it was Dierama Guinevere - it's definitely not that! Don't have a clue as to what it is. ID would be appreciated.

It looks like Gaura 'Whirling Butterflies'

Does the rest of the plant match?

I agree, that pretty flower sure looks to be a variety of Gaura (Oenothera linderhiemeri):

Gaura (Oenothera lindheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies')

White Gaura (Oenothera lindheimeri)

Appleblossom Grass (Oenothera lindheimeri 'The Bride')

Appleblossom Grass (Oenothera lindheimeri Snow Fountain™)
