Eriogonum fasciculatum

California Buckwheat

Wild Buckwheat is most common in the western United States, where it grows wild and where the hot, dry climate suits it. Use it to cover slopes and banks, in rock gardens or in windy spots. The only eastern type, Eriogonum allenii, is native to the shale barrens of Virginia and West Virginia and thrives at least as far north as New York City. Small blossoms grow in clusters that turn tan or rust as seeds ripen, and they make attractive cut flowers. Cut spent flower heads unless you want seedlings. With age, shrub types often become lanky, but periodic pruning will help plants keep their shape longer.
