Eriogonum grande var. rubescens
“Red Buckwheat”

Eriogonum grande var. rubescens “Red Buckwheat” Eriogonum grande var. rubescens “Red Buckwheat”

This hard-to-find, choice & goof-proof evergreen “Buckwheat” from the Channel Islands thrives on neglect & prefers dry, clay soil! One of the best butterfly magnets around, it blooms June-October, providing lots of Sum­mer color for your habitat, native or dry garden. The shortest, most delicate looking of the “Buckwheats,” it’s also evergreen, forming a nice, low, dense 1’ x 3’ mound of spoon shaped leaves, green above & wooly below. Excellent for massing on dry hillsides. Deer resistant! Hardy to 15° F.
