A must have plant.

Sanguisorba ‘St Philibert’ has an abundance of beautiful, deep burgundy flowers. The blooms open atop slender stems from early summer into the dying days of autumn. It is a little shorter than most Sanguisorba but just as beautiful and useful.

The handsome, fine foliage of Sanguisorba ‘St Philibert’ 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 cooking (salads and soups, they tastes a bit peppery, like celery, not recommended during pregnancy).

Plant Sanguisorba ‘St Philibert’ in borders or beds, when combined with tall grasses, it is stunning, as the foliage hides low to the ground, leaving the flowers to sway in the breeze. It looks especially good with yellow tinged foliage.

Sanguisorba is one of the favourite plants of renowned landscape designer Piet Oudolff.

Flowers suitable for picking and last well.

Plant Sanguisorba ‘St Philibert’ in a cottage garden for late season colour. Grow in full sun to semi shade in moderately fertile, to humus rich, moist soil, it will not be bothered by a bit of bog. Water to establish and keep moist in active growth. Protect new growth from slugs and snails.

Sanguisorba is commonly known as Burnet.
