Blooming in spite of tough conditions
from Los Gatos, CA
About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Eriogonum umbellatum Proliferum:
It is one of the few plants that survive, thrive, and eventually bloom beautifully in spite of tough conditions of full sun, hard clay, and little watering during drought. Rabbits, deer, and slugs also leave it alone. It takes a few years to grow large (which is okay), and should be planted where it is not in danger of being stepped on, since the branches break easily.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from telluride, co
About Me Master Gardener
Don't let the product name fool you. While "beautiful" and buckwheat" may not seem to go together, in this case they do. These lovely little plants require no pampering and thrive outside my irrigation parameter in challenging high altitude conditions (9,000 ft in Telluride, CO). I get pretty yellow flowers in June, stunning bronze foliage in Mid-September. While my flowers are not as profuse as the plant pictured on the web, my plants are also left to fend entirely on their own after planting. I'm excited to be able to order more this year!
