Eriogonum

Eriogonum allenii ‘Little Rascal’ full sun  drought tolerant

Though its lighthearted cultivar name and rather serious sounding common moniker may conjure divergent images, this reliable under used perennial has virtues everyone agrees on: long bloom period, ease of maintenance, cold hardiness and exceptional drought tolerance. Gray-green paddle-like leaves compose a tidy, dense low growing rosette beneath the slew of beautiful bright golden umbels. Adored by bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, the parasol-shaped blooms mature with bronzy orange hues and later develop intriguing seed heads. Sunshine, good air circulation and dry, sharply drained lean soil will keep ‘Little Rascal’ from making too much mischief!

Size: 16" high x 16" wide; hardy to zone 5.
