Longstem Buckwheat is the buckwheat for dried flowers. The long delicate wands of gray foliage and pink flowers make a great foil for ferns and roses. Use in a neglected rock garden, rock face you don't think a plant can grow on, crack in concrete wall, etc.. This plant could probably grow in a rain gutter with no care. It's common in our county outside of fence lines(cattle eat it) from Hwy 58 north through Shandon and into Parkfield.
An incredible insect plant.
