California Buckwheat

Eriogonum fasciculatum

A California native, this perennial shrub requires little maintenance. Low-growing, woolly, gray-green foliage is finely-textured and produces ball-shaped flower clusters in a range of white and pale pink hues. Foliage, flower nectar, and seeds all serve as important sources of nutrition for butterflies, bees, and small birds throughout the year. This species is useful in native gardens and drought-tolerant landscapes.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
