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 softer, less defined forms in borders or in more naturalized plantings.
Sanguisorba menziesii ‘Wake Up’ (P-2192)
This head-turning British cultivar swaggers lanky and close-knit oblong pinkish maroon tassels that are longer and fluffier than the Pacific Northwest species. Laden with prominent hairs, the long-lasting floral hoopla crests strong upright stems and a robust foundation of decorative blue-gray pinnate foliage. Ensconce anywhere ‘Wake-Up’s whimsical blooms can be backlit by the afternoon sun and relished even when past their prime.
Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 16" – 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
