Sanguisorba hakusanensis ‘Lilac Squirrel’
at Digging Dog

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.

Fluffy, decidedly feminine and pendulous, the 5 in. long squirrel tail blooms are draped like bodacious pink boas atop sparsely leafed sturdy stems. Loose fine textured filaments define the look-at-me flowers, while red-infused petioles and bold blue-green pinnate leaves further enhance the beguilement.

Size: 20"–2-1/2' high x 15"–18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
