Sanguisorba hakusanensis


Availability : Available

Description :

Native to Japan and Korea, Sanguisorba hakusanensis, also known as Korean Burnet and Lilac Squirrel is a beautiful specimen.

A star or focus plant that can be planted in the middle of a mixed border together with Echinacea, Agastache, Artemisia 'Powis Castle' or the all new Stachys monieri 'Hummelo'

Sophie Attout tells us more:

« Its leaves are typical of the Sanguisorba genus, but this is a giant version (leaves 20 - 30 cm long) and from the spring on they form a rounded clump 60 cm in height." At the end of June, floral stems with several flower buds grow up to 20 cm above the leaves. The pink catkins flower until the beginning of September. The plumes wave nonchalantly above the tidy, rounded clump of leaves. Their shade of pink is almost lilac, with more blue than yellow, and set off by the bright green foliage.»

Grow in the sun or light shade in good garden soil. Remove the dead flowers and stems to prolong flowering.
