The flower is often planted around September. In the last months of the year, Ha Giang becomes more picturesque as buckwheat flowers are in full bloom and embraced by sunshine. The hills and mountains are covered by the white and pink of the flower.

Buckwheat is cultivated for its grain-like seeds, which are used to make specialty food by ethnic minorities in the mountainous region. The flower symbolises love and happiness, so many couples shoot their wedding photos in these fields.
