It looks like a Polygonum, but not aubertii (to me, anyway).

Looks like one of the polygonums in the genus Fallopia or Fagopyrum.

Perhaps Fagopyrum esculentum.

I'm hemming and hawing because I have a magnificent polygonum albertii right outside my kitchen window, purchased from a nursery at which I used to be a grower. As others have noticed, it's difficult to say yes, because it doesn't look exactly like mine (the species) It is a perfect vine for a specific spot and in my case, I use it to cover the less than lovely facade of a snag tree in which I have a bee colony and the upper part of the tree is used by various birds for nesting. It could very well be p. albertii, especially if it is the cultivar Lemon Lace. The red tinge on the leaves, and the stem make me consider this a distinct possibility.

After this picture was taken, over the next three weeks or so, every plant flowered and then died. They were still in 3" pots and being treated the same as thousands of other seedlings that thrived.

Is there a chance they were chlorotic, instead of a yellow cultivar? I have never left liner plants in small pots in that close proximity to other liner plants. It invites diseases, especially crown rots and they often have differing moisture requirements. If/when fungus hits, it'll wipe out sections of stock held like that with the most susceptible going first, especially if they were iffy to begin with.

I'm nearly certain they are/were buckwheat as rosemariero suggested. They certainly followed the life cycle closely and never showed signs of vining or twining.
