Description

Very rare and hard to find. Once sold out we may not be able to obtain seeds again.

Eriogonum crocatum, the Conejo buckwheat or saffron buckwheat, is a species of Eriogonum, or wild buckwheat. It is endemic to the Conejo Valley and surrounding regions in Ventura County, California. It grows on open, dry hillsides, often in crags in rock faces.

Eriogonum crocatum is a perennial shrub less than 0.5 metres (1.6 ft) high by 0.5–1 metre (1.6–3.3 ft) wide. Its foliage is a striking silvery green, with woolly leaves. The flowers bloom from April–August, bearing clusters of tiny bright, sulfur yellow flowers. It has no dormancy period.

It likes sun and is drought tolerant. It makes an excellent accent plant. It thrives in clay soils and survives some other soils. It can tolerate light freezes.

These seeds are very rare and are in limited supply.

Seeds per pack: 3

Germination: Start these seeds indoors right away for best germination rates. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination can be 30-60 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
