In summer the upright, wiry, branched stems bear plenty of deep red flowers. The form is extremely ornamental and architectural which is why it is one of the famous Piet Oudolff's darling plants. It is almost as if the flowers are hovering above the foliage.
Plant Sanguisorba 'Red Thunder' in borders or beds, when combined with tall grasses, it is stunning. It looks especially good with yellow tinged foliage. The flowers are good for cutting.

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.

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. 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.
