Grown for incredible flowers, tasty buckwheat seeds and feeding beneficial insects! In 1987, the very rare Red buckwheat was taken to Japan from the Himalayan Mountains at an altitude of 3,800m by Professor Emeritus Akio Ujihara of Shinshu University. We are told that Takano and Mr. Ujihara further developed this to suit the Japanese climate. Clouds of rose-pink flowers cover this low maintenance buckwheat. The drought tolerant flowers are fantastic to attract beneficial pollinators in abundance and add an amazing pop to long-lasting bouquets. Planted en masse is as stunning as a field of lavender. Easy to grow, deer resistant, drought tolerant and hardy in much of the USA.

Review:

Have planted this buckwheat 3 times, with the current crop is now in bloom in my front yard (in partial shade), and it's about 2 1/2 feet tall. Beautiful pink flowers, the bees love it, and it needs little water. Seeds are easy to harvest as they dry on the plants.

What are the pros? Very pretty indeed

What are the cons? Being eaten alive by bugs

Review:

I'm just now getting a few plants started. The germination was not very good to say the least. As soon as the Buckwheat started blooming it was being skeltonized by very small iridescent insects. They got on my green beans as well. Need to know what to spray them with because I'd like to save the seed and multiply en masse. I'm spraying with dilute Neem oil and a little dish soap. Hope it works. Would I recommend it? Yes, It's pretty enough to give it a try.

Review:

This buckwheat has the most vibrant flowers. The deep, magenta/pink color is beautiful to behold. Seeds germinated quickly and easily. Fail safe way to add color to your garden.
