Within its wide range, California buckwheat takes on a variety of growth forms. The horticultural selections all seem to derive from southern California, where the plant is most common. ‘Bruce Dickinson’ is a low mounding form that grows to about two feet or so and can spread to eight feet. Unlike the ‘Warriner Lytle’ and ‘Theodore Payne’ selections, the stems are straight and upright as opposed to trailing. ‘Bruce Dickinson’ is adaptable to a variety of soil types and accepts some shade. It is a great plant to naturalize (no supplemental irrigation). The white flowers appear in mid-summer and continue into fall. The dried seed heads may be removed for a neater appearance or left for the birds.
