Eriogonum compositum


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A robust Eriogonum from shrub steppe habitat east of the Cascades from WA to CA and east to ID. An awesome plant for a larger spot in the rock garden, mounding to 18"x30". Arrow-shaped leaves are felty-green on top and wooly-white beneath while white to pale-yellow umbels of flowers appear late May to July. Like many other Eriogonum, this is an important pollinator plant for butterflies. Lean and good drainage.
