SUPERPOWER

Climbs up other plants! The wiry wild buckwheat plant uses your crop as a way to access sunlight.

DESCRIPTION

With its arrow (or heart-shaped) leaves, wild buckwheat first grows along the soil surface and branches out to make its own canopy until it encounters other plants. Its long, wiry stems can cause havoc at harvest, and its root system is large and fibrous, helping to make it drought-tolerant.
