In summer masses of upright, wiry stems bear a bevy of deep red flowers over low growing foliage. En masse, or scattered regularly through a garden bed they are spectacular.

The form is extremely ornamental and architectural which is why it is one of Piet Oudolff's darling plants.

The handsome, fine foliage of Sanguisorba 'Red Thunder' is soft green with a blue blush and opens low on the stem. The leaves, when crushed smell of cucumber and can be used in salads (not recommended in pregnancy).

Useful and easy in borders or beds or at the garden’s edge. When combined with tall grasses, it is stunning and is the perfect match for plants with yellow tinged foliage.

The flowers are suitable for arrangements and last well.

Grow Sanguisorba 'Red Thunder' in a cottage garden for late season colour. Grow in full sun to semi shade in moderately fertile, to humus rich, well drained soil – it is quite obliging and adaptable and can even cope in heavy soils. Water to establish (water regularly for around four weeks so they have time to settle in) and keep moist in active growth. Protect new growth from slugs and snails.

Sanguisorba is commonly known as Burnet.
