Eriogonum giganteum
“St. Catherine’s Lace”

Eriogonum giganteum “St. Catherine’s Lace” Eriogonum giganteum “St. Catherine’s Lace”

 

The largest of all the “Buckwheats,” Eriogonum giganteum is EASY, very DROUGHT TOLERANT & tolerates hot, arid regions as well as coastal salt spray. It’s also one of the most popular nectar sources for many butterflies, especially the California Blues & Hairstreaks, quite a few of which are suffering from dwindling habitats. A very nice looking California native, Eriogonum giganteum is freely branching & grows to 4’ tall x 5’ wide with attractive wooly, gray, oval leaves. The longest blooming of all “Buckwheats,” it starts in April with large clusters of tiny, white flowers & keeps its bloom till Fall, when the flowers age to a rusty color. “St. Catherine’s Lace” requires no Summer water once established & tolerates clay, though it thrives best in well-drained soil. Native to Santa Catalina Island.
