Saffron Buckwheat

Eriogonum crocatum

Blooming right through hot, dry conditions, saffron buckwheat is perfect for rock gardens and other hot, dry sites. Its chartreuse yellow flowers open in early summer and fade to rich rusty brown in late summer. It has fuzzy white foliage, similar to that of dusty miller. Saffron buckwheat grows best in well-drained soil or clay and does well with little or no water in summer.
