Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Fine Buckwheat from seed collected in Kern Co. CA at 7830'. This population is one of the most compact forms of this variety with very small, gray-white leaves on a low mat that can eventually get 2' across. The flower stems can be 16" tall, and unlike its pom-pom flowered kin, the white to pale pink flowers are ranked along the stem to nice effect. Dryish mineral soil zones 5-8.
