Eriogonum arborescens is a woody perennial shrub that grows from 6–15 decimetres (2.0–4.9 ft) in height, and sprawling from 5–30 decimetres (1.6–9.8 ft) in diameter.
The stems have shreddy maroon=brown bark. They bear narrow, fuzzy green leaves at the ends of the branches, each 2 to 5 centimeters long and sometimes with edges rolled under.
The frilly inflorescences of densely clustered flowers erect on nearly naked peduncles. Each flower is only a few millimeters wide, very light pink in color, with nine protruding stamens. The bloom period is from April to October.
Eriogonum arborescens is cultivated as an ornamental plant, for planting in native plant, drought tolerant, and in butterfly gardens and other wildlife gardens; and for larger designed natural landscaping and habitat restoration projects.
