Kannah Creek® Buckwheat
Hailing from western Colorado, this long-lived Plants Select introduction celebrates a colorful tough-as-nails constitution that triumphs over cold, heat, drought and deer. Low slow-spreading mats of small leathery green leaves premier copious tiny bright yellow blossoms on 12 to 15 in. stalks. Favored by beneficial insects, bee, birds and butterflies, the striking cut-flower-perfect blooms deepen to orange and eventually turn rust by autumn, while the attractive evergreen foliage develops red and purple hues. Well-suited for troughs, edging, alpine gardens and broad sweeps, ‘Psdowns’ relishes either a lean sandy soil or an average garden loam, an early spring trim plus plenty of sun.
