Pink buckwheat on Mt.Shasta, CA

Post by rjlittlefield »

Anybody know this one? I'm not sure that it's a buckwheat (Polygonaceae:Eriogonum), but it sure struck me that way. It's not far above the upper parking lot on Mt. Shasta, CA, about 8200 ft elevation (Sept 3, 2006). Total plant height about 3 in. You could probably sell a zillion of these if it was about 10X bigger!
