Eriogonum tomentosum Michaux. Sandhill Wild-buckwheat, Southern Wild-buckwheat, Dog-tongue. Phen: Late Jul-Sep; Sep-Nov. Hab: Longleaf pine sandhills, usually in white sand, primarily in the fall-line Sandhills and on riverine dunes in the middle and upper Coastal Plain. Dist: S. NC (at least formerly) south to c. peninsular FL, west to s. AL. There seems no reason to doubt the label data of an 1890's Biltmore Herbarium collection from Bladen County, NC (Pittillo, Horton, & Herman 1972), as E. tomentosum is fairly common not far away in SC; the species has apparently not been seen in NC since.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Synonymy: = Fl4, FNA5, K3, K4, RAB, S, WH3, Horton (1972), Reveal (1989), Reveal (2004)
