Eriogonum allenii Little Rascal

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!

Blooms June-September

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

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
