Plant Highlights

This buckwheat has yellow flowers that appear in spring and last through summer. It has white foliage which makes the flowers stand out even more. Buckwheat's are very important in the animal community because they provide food for many of the smaller mammals in the form of seeds. They are also great for a bird garden.
