Eriogonum arborescens

Eriogonum arborescens

Eriogonum arborescens, or Santa Cruz Island Buckwheat, is a woody herbaceous perennial, growing to 2-5' tall by 5' wide. It has thin leaves that get to be a grayish hue with time and drought, with unforgettable cream-pink flowers that are a magnet to every native insect and bird..You can sit and watch this one's flowers and be marveled by all the microscopic insects and butterflies pollinating it. Like all native Buckwheats, the flowers start white, fade to pink, then turn to rust from late May into October. This makes a great focal point for flowers in Summer-Fall time.
