Annual Buckwheat is a grey, woolly plant 1-5 ft. with sprays of minute white flowers at the top. Interesting yet gawky as a single plant. In groups, it is lace over the landscape and as the plants turn pink in the autumn the appearance is beguiling. This drought tolerant annual freely sows itself in sandy soils, but can be difficult to get started. Cold stratifying for 1-2 months may improve germination. Zones 5-8.
