Sanguisorba tenuifolia var. 'Alba'
Tall, willowy and very elegant this is a plant for naturalistic styles of gardening.
A fine accent plant amongst grasses and taller perennials such as Verbena and Rudbeckia.
The foliage is fine and pinnate, forming tidy round clumps but the catkin like flower-heads are the real scene stealers rising high above on wiry stems.
Despite this ethereal nature Sanguisorba are very tough surviving temperatures down to -20C. They like some moisture particularly whilst they establish and will flop in burning hot sun. They are not drought tolerant. A mulch in early spring is beneficial.
