Naked buckwheat is a slender spike of white or pink or yellow flowers. It harbors a delightful little insect that mirrors the flower petals. (I thought I'd knocked a flower off when I took the picture, until it turned, looked at me and flew off.) This plant has a 3 inch(6 cm.) base of small leaves from which it grows up into a 3 to 6 foot stem with small flower clusters near the top. Click here for more about California Buckwheats
