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 into sprawling trees. Whatever form they come in, the bees do not discriminate, they 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.
