Eriogonum ursinum is native to the middle elevations of the northern Sierra Nevada mountains, growing in full sun in most areas, afternoon shade in desert areas. Water once/week until established, then water once/month or so; needs good drainage. With many clusters of white or yellow flowers on flat foliage, this buckwheat is an excellent groundcover at higher elevations when mixed with Arctostaphylos uva-ursi. The buckwheats are very important butterfly plants and one of the pillars of their communities. The flowers, leaves and seeds are all used by many of the smaller animals.
