Per the Catalog of Life/ITIS-2011, latest taxonomic scrutiny and GRIN-2009 G. lindheimeri is a synonym of White Gaura (Oenothera lindheimeri). Kew World Checklist looks to still be reviewing/updating as they're silent.

Can you provide a link to it, Johanna? I looked around the Kew website, but couldn't find a reference to it. I'll be happy to add it to the database, just need a bit more information.

Thank you,

Kent

Hi Kent

I searched at Kew Gardens under Gaura Grace and they came up with one result for Gaura Grace

Hi Johanna,

Can you provide a link to it? When I search for Gaura Grace, all I get is this:

http://www.kew.org/search/search?q=Gaura+Grace&partialfields...

which isn't a reference to a cultivar of Gaura lindheimeri called 'Grace', but rather just mentions "grace-ful" flowers and Gaura lindheimeri in the same paragraph?

Also, as Evan mentioned above, the currently accepted name of these plants is Oenothera lindheimeri. However, if you search for Gaura lindheimeri in the ATP database, they will still all show up:

http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Gaura+lindheimeri...

Thanks,

Kent
