Eriogonum grande rubescens

Eriogonum rubescens grande dark form
A charming curio from California. (Thanks again Dennis.) Dense clusters of rosy flowers on disproportionately long, wiry, branching, green stems.

The leaves are a small rosette with a fine coat of white silk.

Hard to describe but reminiscent, to me at least, of a very choice Limonium (Sea Lavender).
For hot dry conditions and easily replaced from seed if the winter sees them off.
1L pots ~ £6
