Plant Highlights

This tough, drought tolerant Buckwheat combines the hardiness and habitat value of the common Buckwheat, with the versatility of a groundcover. This low-growing, dependable plant is adaptable and easy to grow. Fine dark-green, needle-like green leaves are topped in late spring and summer by clusters of pinkish-white flowers that turn to a rusty brown in late summer. Warriner Lytle Buckwheat reaches 1-2' high and its arching branches will spread 4'-5'. It makes a great slope ground-cover, is a must for a butterfly garden or bird habitat, or plant beside pathways where you can enjoy the blooms and the many butterflies it will attract. This is a favorite nectar source for many butterfly species, especially Blues. As the summer progresses the birds will flock to feed on the seeds. Will tolerate clay when planted on a slope. Provide occasional water. Introduced by Theodore Payne Foundation
