Buckwheat Tree

Evergreen shrub or tree with small glossy leathery leaves. Can become much larger than size given in suitable natural habitat. Found along streams and in acid bogs in the lower southeastern coastal plains. This is a fine evergreen with early white fragrant flowers in terminal upright spikes followed by clusters of light brown winged seeds which persist on the tree and resemble buckwheat seed, hence the common name. Will grow in ordinary garden soil if acidic and kept moist. Probably best in full sun. Native to southern U.S.
