Sanguisorba officinalis Chocolate Tip

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.

Famed for its ferny blue-green foliage that’s burnished with chocolate overtones, this superb new cultivar produces a lavish plethora of egg-shaped brunette-tinged maroon flowers. The dense chubby blooms uniquely open from the bottom up, while perched on firm slender branching stems. ‘Chocolate Tip’ brings a buoyant stance and dark saturated hues to the colorful blooms of Agastache ‘Bolero’ and Aster ‘Harrington’s Pink’ in our border.

Blooms July–October.

Size: 2-1/4' high x 16" wide; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
