Sanguisorba officinalis ‘Tanna’
at Digging Dog

Sanguisorba officinalis Tanna

Sanguisorba

Burnet

A profusion of dense and oblong, catkin-like blooms sway above decorative pinnate foliage, generating interest for months. Happiest in a sunny spot where the soil stays moist, these vigorous perennials offer contrasting clarity to the softer, less defined forms in the naturalized garden.

Well suited for the smaller scale garden, ‘Tanna’s mound of ferny leaf fronds makes an elegant host to the cylindrical, burgundy flower spires that playfully top foot-long stems. Cultivated since the Middle Ages, the cucumber-flavored foliage has been a welcome addition in the salad bowl.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 18" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.
