Sanguisorba obtusa
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.

Residing on wiry arching stems, soft pink fingerlike spikes look fluffy and feminine. They nod lazy heads at the handsome bushy mass of tranquil blue-green leaves marked by indented margins that grows below.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
