Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Wicker Buckwheat has tiny pink flowers at each node in its slender wicker-like stems. Two very similar species grow at Bohemia. Examine the groups of flowers. If some grow in whorls, it is Eriogonum vimineum. If not, it is Eriogonum luteolum. Everything about these two species is much smaller than the common Naked Buckwheat. Buckwheat Family (Polygonaceae).
