Orange County residents: A free Buckwheat in every garden

The Orange County chapter of the California Native Plant Society is giving away one free four-inch California buckwheat plant beginning October 5 at Acorn Day in O’Neill Regional Park. Plants will be distributed for planting in Orange County gardens only. Each of the 1,500 Buckwheat plants will be added to the OC Buckwheat Map as they are planted throughout the county.

The ‘Dana Point’ variety of California buckwheat grows naturally in the Dana Point headlands area and was selected by Tree of Life Nursery. This plant blooms profusely during late spring and summer, and often longer, with creamy white flowers that attract butterflies and other pollinators. California buckwheat is easy to grow and requires little water once established. The 'Dana Point' selection mounds one-to-three-feet and blends perfectly in any garden. California buckwheat is beautiful on a slope, in a border, or in a themed garden.
