Eriogonum ovalifolium – cushion buckwheat

This is the quintessential cushion plant! With low-growing, wooly leaves to reduce water loss and a single, woody taproot that delves deep into the ground, this little guy loves gravel and full sun!  Its cream colored flowers fade to pink after flowering.  It’s a favorite of butterflies and many other pollinators.  (perennial / plant fall or winter)
