Eriogonum fasciulatum (California buckwheat; Eastern Mojave buckwheat)
A lovely shrubby eriogonum with small soft green leaves and a very long flowering period. Budding up in early spring, by mid to late spring it begins flowering and continues well into autumn. Flowering is so prolific, on long stems, that at times it can be hard to see the foliage. Soft ivory flowers take on pinkinsh tones as they age through to ochre. I grow these from seed and find plants are a little variable in size. Generally they mature around 1.5m high and wide, but some may be smaller or larger. Trim after flowering if required to tidy or manage size. Full sun to some afternoon shade in very hot locations.
