A funny looking perennial with small pink flowers on a 3' stalk. The stalk is inflated in the middle. This plant is all over the east end of our county and across over to Ariz. and Colorado. Hoover says it is an annual, Munz a perennial so far here it has lived longer than a year... The buckwheats are very important butterfly plants and one of the pillars of their communities. The flowers, leaves and seeds are all used by all the smaller animals. Click here for more about California Buckwheats
