Eriogonum giganteum * St. Catherine's Lace

Eriogonum giganteum is almost always one of the best looking California native plants in the garden. The flowers fade to a brown that contrasts well with the grey leaves. Eriogonum giganteum will grow to 6-8 feet tall and wide. The St. Catherine's Lace will tolerate a wide variety of soil types and even does well near the coast. Eriogonum giganteum is hardy in temperatures that dip into the teens. St. Catherine's Lace blooms in late Spring and into the Summer. Eriogonum giganteum is a host plant for the Western Tussock Moth Caterpillar.
