<i>Eriogonum allenii</i> ‘Little Rascal’ <i>Eriogonum allenii</i> ‘Little Rascal’

Though its lighthearted cultivar name and rather serious sounding common moniker may conjure divergent images, this reliable underused 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, fast-draining lean soil will keep ‘Little Rascal’ from making too much mischief!

Blooms June–September

Size: 16" high x 16" wide.
