Sanguisorba menziesii, also known as Burnet or Alaskan Burnet is a rare, perennial Alaskan native plant that makes a wonderful floral filler flower. It’s delightful in your cutting garden for the whimsical way in which the 3" to 4" inch bottle top blooms dance in the breeze. Its remarkable, sultry burgundy color really stands out. The "bunny tail" type blooms sit on top of wiry branching stems and put on quite the garden show from late spring through mid summer. Feathery grey-green pinnate foliage makes this an attractive planting when intermixed with plants among dark green foliage, creating both color and textural contrast to garden beds. The willowy presence of these well formed 24" to 30" inch mounded plants make them an ideal companion to savanna landscapes, especially where edges are blending into swaths of fields or native meadows. Plants prefer moist, well-drained soil. They will thrive in an open sunny border in or part-shade and are hardy to zone 3. The seed heads hold their color for weeks and can be dried and used as an everlasting flower. Packet: 25 seeds.
