A sensational choice with grasses or amid perennials in a cottage border, the pink flower spikes open on narrow stems, and sway in the gentlest breeze creating movement and colour in your garden. A natural beauty that is easy care.
A versatile plant, you could place Sanguisorba ‘Pink Tanna’ in the middle of the border for height, or along the edge as the foliage is low growing and you can see through the narrow stems to the plants behind. The flowers bloom from summer to autumn and are great for picking.
Sanguisorba is one of the favourite plants of renowned landscape designer Piet Oudolff.
