This shrubby perennial will grow 2' high and wide. It is covered with small balls of white to pink flowers from midsummer until fall. Drought and clay tolerant, this buckwheat prefers full sun. The seacliff buckwheat is native to coastal bluffs from Monterey County south. When planted inland it may need occasional water. It is easy to grow, and will self sow readily. To keep foliage dense, cut back after flowering. The Smith's Blue Butterfly relies on this plant and E. parvifolium as its only two food sources for their entire life cycle.
