Eriogonum allenii 'Little Rascal'
Common Name: Shale barrens buckwheat
This beautiful, long-flowering workhorse is a durable plant that thrives in urban plantings, rock gardens or any consistently dry site. With a tidy, low-growing habit of gray-green, paddle-shaped leaves, it bursts with golden yellow umbels that age to various shades of bronzy orange in the late summer. A wonderful little plant at 18-24” tall, it provides habitat and nectar for butterflies, honeybees, bumblebees and hummingbirds. It is also a great selection for those who enjoy cut flowers.
