Sanguisorba tenuifolia ‘Alba’
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.

Sanguisorba tenuifolia ‘Alba’ full sun  partial shade

A textural delight of saw-toothed, finely divided leaves, ‘Alba’s clump-forming mound lays the foundation for slim, fluffy white, drooping blooms. These elegant cylindrical flowers, abundantly borne on tall branching stems well above the vigorous greenery, look like luminous catkins caught in a rain shower.

Blooms September – October.

Size: 4'–5' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
