I know the feeling.

I'm sorry Stone but they have all died down for the year so no new photos can be had.

Oenothera filipes is a synonym of Gaura filipes, unless something has changed.

ITIS has it the other way around but theplantlist date is 2012, ITIS is 2011.

http://www.itis.gov/servlet/Si...

The Catalogue of Life gives it as Oenothera filipes (it refers to ITIS) ..

Whichever, same plant.

Someone gave this link earlier

If you scroll down past the photos it says:
"sinuate to dentate leaves"

I would say that matches your leaves.

No decent leaf pics...
I'm willing to concede oenonthra filipes...

I will make it a point to try to remember next year when mine come up to get a fabulous leaf photo for you & if at that time you decide yours isn't filipes then you can remove it.
