Eriogonum umbellatum
“Sulphur Buckwheat”

Eriogonum umbellatum Sulphur Flower Eriogonum umbellatum Sulphur Flower

The perfect edger for dry/rock gardens and quite possibly the best “Buckwheat” for maintaining year-round good looks! Handsome sage green, spoon-shaped leaves form a tidy compact evergreen mound to 1’ tall and 2’ across. Smothering itself in brightest lemon yellow clusters from late Spring till end of Summer, it’s also one of the best invites for bees and butterflies. Native to much of the western US and Canada, it’s extremely heat and cold tolerant. Needs poor fertility and excellent drainage to live many years, so add plenty of gravel. Needs little or no water once established. Deer resistant.
