Two of my favorite plants, out in force in the front yard... seems a little early this year. Eriogonum grande rubescens (rosy buckwheat) and E. fasciculatum (California buckwheat). The rosy's can be cut back pretty drastically come fall. They also re-seed themselves like a weed. The California looks a lot tougher but must be treated more gingerly... a mild haircut OK, no amputations. I've found it a challenge to propagate. Like rosy, it produces tons of seeds, but not a one of them ever seems to sprout. Cuttings rarely root. But then, I really have no idea what I am doing in the garden...
