Eriogonum fasciculatum polifolium

Arizona Buckwheat
Polygonaceae
Perennials, Shrubs

ERIOGONUM

Individual blossoms are tiny but grow in long-stemmed or branched clusters—usually domed, flattish, or ball-like. Flowers age to an attractive tan or reddish brown and persist for a long time; good in dried arrangements. Flowers attract butterflies; birds enjoy the seeds. Grow best in well-drained, loose, gravelly soil. Useful for covering dry banks, massing among rocks; smaller forms make good specimens in rock gardens.

Eriogonum fasciculatum polifolium

Native to inland mountains and deserts of California into western Utah, Arizona, and northwest Mexico. Differs from the species only in minor botanical details.
