Eriogonum cithariforme is a species of wild buckwheat known by the common name cithara buckwheat.
Eriogonum cithariforme is an annual herb growing up to about half a meter in maximum height with a spreading or erect flowering stem with many upcurved branches.
The wavy, woolly leaves are round to oval in shape and are mainly located about the base of the stem. They are greenish in colour.
The inflorescence is lined with many clusters of white to pinkish flowers with a dark central stripe. At 3-4mm in size these flowers are large compared to most other genus members. In younger plants inflorescence clusters are limited to branch junctions, but in age clusters are born along the upper stem as well.
