Tough and easy to grow, California Buckwheat thrives in dry conditions. Plant in a well draining sunny site with little to no supplemental water after established, though it will tolerate occasional summer water. Form is variable, ranging from open and upright to dense and mounding. It produces profuse pink to white and cream-colored flowers as early as March that dry to a pretty red rust color as the soil dries. A great choice for wildlife and butterfly gardens!
