A perennial, 2 ft. high by 2 ft. wide. Native near coast from Monterey to San Diego, shade to sun, red-green foliage, and reddish-pink flowers. This one does well in the San Joaquin Valley and in the warmer areas of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Seacliff Buckwheat did well here until the 0 F., weather in 1990. The buckwheats are very important butterfly plants and one of the pillars of their communities. The flowers, leaves and seeds are all used by many of the smaller animals. Plants occurring nearby are Eriophyllum staechadifolium, Hazardia squarrosa, Sisyrinchium bellum, Salvia spathacea, and Erigeron glaucus, in an open, sunny area of coastal bluffs (sometimes called coastal prairie), in central coastal California.
