California Buckwheat


California Buckwheat is a drought-resistant native wildflower that thrives along the dry slopes and chaparral ecosystems of Northern California. Once used by Native Americans as a powerful medicinal herb, this dryland hero boasts surprisingly frilly little clusters of white and pink blossoms. This wild buckwheat known as erigonum, appears in many forms; creeping along the ground, in densely flowering low bushes and on into sprawling trees. The bees love them all!

With a rich flavor like creamy caramel, the flowers blossoms are a welcome nectar source for honeybees, especially in times of drought. This flower grows all over California, from home gardens to wild forests.

Every now and again, honeybees gather rare and delightful nectars, transforming them into amazing honeys. We take delight in sharing these unusual varietals from throughout the world in our Golden Reserve Honey Collection.
