I've been growing Eriogonum grande var. rubescens in my garden for the last three years now and have loved every minute! This year I was even excited to discover new little plantlets! I live in Fremont on the South-East side of the bay and I grow them in full sun, but I do have to give them some supplemental water to keep them looking nicer. Try them - you won't be disappointed!

Grows with little care through our hot, dry summers (inland San Diego, CA). Dies back in the fall, only to pop back out of the ground in Jan-Feb. Grows best in gritty, fast-draining soil, but also grows quite well in clay-loam.

The blooms on this plant are just lovely, adding lots of interest to the garden and bouquets. Lasts a couple of weeks in a vase.
