Eriogonum?

I found these eriogonum in Nevada, near Austin, just south of Highway 50. June 20. They ranged in size from 6 to 12 inches in diameter.

Does anyone know what kind of eriogonum they are?

Just because it is one I have grown (and lost) it looks very like E. shockleyi. But I have never seen them in the wild so am no expert. It is a wonderful genus!

I garden in a relatively hot and dry region (for the UK!), with an annual rainfall of around 25", winter lows of -10°C and summer highs of 30°C.

Thanks Tim.  Yes, you could be right.

These are very nice plants.  They would need very dry conditions to do well as the desert in which they grow receives about 7 inches of rain a year.
