Sanguisorba

Burnet

A profusion of oblong, catkin-like blooms resides above decorative pinnate foliage, generating interest for months. Happiest in a sunny spot where the soil stays moist, these hearty perennials offer contrasting clarity to the softer, less defined forms in the naturalized garden or a border.

Sanguisorba ‘Cangshan Cranberry’ (P-2072)

Each 9.75

AVAILABLE SPRING 2021

Collected in Yunnan, China by plantsman Dan Hinkley, ‘Cangshan Cranberry’ is a stately late-blooming cultivar whose daring bottlebrush-like flowers are suffused with marvelous dusky-burgundy hues. Inspiring British nursery proprietor Marina Christopher to coin the namesake, copious close-knit bobbles roost atop tall, slender, self-supporting reddish stems, while oval-shaped blue-green leaflets distinguish the winsome jagged-edged pinnate foliage. A dynamic counterpoint to blousey trusses and spires as well as daisy-style blooms, this lofty, seldom offered Sanguisorba can be peppered amid Phlox ‘Miss Mary’, Veronicastrum ‘Pink Glow’ and Helianthus salicifolia to great effect. (DJHC535)

Blooms August–early November

Size: 5' 0" – 6' 0" high x 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.
