I really don't know anything about these, except that I liked the pictures. I am going on the information I have found about them, but jasmine is not listed among the names. I believe this is used a lot for ground-cover in dry areas. Another hint--according to one article I read, they do well by themselves, but not so well with other plants.

P.S. Although good for ground-cover, can grow very tall also. It kind of goes up and out.

Not buckwheat.

Another hint: Look at how the flowers on the second picture droop. This leads to one of its names.

Further hints, based on further reading: Apparently mainly considered a pest now. While the one article says they don't grow well with other plants, a more scientific article says they take over many other plants. Mostly found in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

The only other thing I can think of right now is some form of honeysuckle or dogbane.

It is a weed that takes over abandoned fields, etc., but some people do plant them. If care is not taken, apparently they can get out of hand.

Since I really need to get some work done, here is a big hint. "Weed" is part of some of its names. The droopy flower effect is behind some of its other names.
