The buckwheat family is a beautiful group of California native all-star plants. It is one of the largest genera in California with over 125 species. In the garden, few plants can equal buckwheats for sheer habitat value. They are host plants and nectar plants for butterflies and moths and are a bonanza for bees and other pollinators looking for summer nectar.

As if the wildlife value isn’t enough, buckwheats are highly ornamental plants that are very useful and versatile in the garden. Learn about some of the most popular species and hear how to plant, prune, and care for them.
