NEW FOR 2022!
Winged Buckwheat - Eriogonum alatum - Perennial
A small 2-4"basal rosette of linear red/green leaves sends up a flowering stalk to 6' of small yellow flowers on branching stems. Those flowers eventually turn into deep maroon-red winged seeds - and they last a long time through the winter. Beautiful against a background of snow. The rosette gets more purple and can stay evergreen in winter.
While stratification cannot hurt, pre-treatment it is not necessary. Plant in spring or fall. Grows up high or down low.
Very cool plant.
