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.
Casting a fanciful feminine style all summer long, this gorgeous aptly named Japanese perennial premiers bushy purplish pink tails that gracefully arch downward on upright stems. A clumping base sprouts gray-green scalloped leaves, which showcase intriguing origami-like patterns as they unfurl and promise a long lasting well-groomed appearance.
Blooms July – August
Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Sanguisorba hakusanensis (P-1715)
