4-6" tall x 12-15" wide. This incredible native wildflower has been a work in progress for chief horticulturist David Salman for many years. “I first found the original colony at the summit of Poncha Pass near Salida, Colorado on a drive from Denver back to Santa Fe. Here, growing on the roadside, was a huge group of plants with deep red colored seed heads. Thrilled by the display and pleased to find ripe seed, I gathered a paper lunch bag full. By the next spring, I had plants growing in several of my stock beds to test this new find and gather seed for future crops,” explained Salman.

Eriogonum umbellatum ‘Poncha Pass Red’ (Poncha Pass Red Sulfur Buckwheat) didn’t disappoint, as it has turned out to be a very durable, long-lived miniature shrub that blooms reliably every year. The bright yellow flower clusters in late spring ripen to dark red seed heads by late summer. And the native bees are thrilled to have such a wonderful nectar source. Exclusive.
