Eriogonum fasciculatum (California Buckwheat) is sometimes also called ‘Warriner Lytle’. It is a sprawling low-growing plant that occasionally can grow to 2 feet tall but is usually a plant that hugs the ground to about 4 ft. wide. It has attractive fine-textured dark green small needle-like leaves and an arching growth habit. Tight round clusters of creamy white to pink flowers will turn to a rust color in summer. Eriogonum fasciculatum should be planted in full sun and requires occasional to little irrigation. This is a great plant for dry slopes.
