Scrub Buckwheat | Everglades Tour

Scrub Buckwheat m is a perennial herb. It has a taproot and one to three above-ground stems up to 1 m tall, but upwards of 10 stems have been observed in vigorous specimens, especially post-fire. It has a basal rosette of leaves that are 15 to 20 cm long, narrow,

and white-woolly on the underside. The stem leaves are smaller than the rosette leaves. The stem terminates in a corymb, with each branch of the corymb ending in a cup-shaped involucre that holds a cluster of 15 to 20 small flowers, with each flower hanging on its stalk

down below the involucre. Everglades Tours
