Highly decorative with its profuse and attractive, lipstick-pink, bottlebrush flowers rising on tall slender stems, Sanguisorba tenuifolia 'Pink Elephant' is a lovely addition to the garden. Attractive to butterflies and pollinators, the flowers bobble in the air and produce charming floating dots of color in the border. This Japanese Burnet enjoys an equally beautiful foliage of intricately cut, light green leaves. A billowy see-through perennial that is perfect to add a transparent effect in the border and create a beautiful hazy tapestry.
- Sanguisorba tenuifolia makes a lovely accent in beds, borders, cottage gardens, city gardens or naturalistic areas such as prairies and meadows. Very useful and adaptable in the garden, it is easy to grow, pest or disease-free, rabbit and deer resistant! Great for cutting too!
- Reliable, this herbaceous perennial blooms profusely from midsummer to fall and grows in upright, bushy clumps, up to 3-5 ft. high (90-150 cm) and 2 ft. across (60 cm).
- Enjoys full sun or part shade in fertile, moist, well-drained soils.
- Cut foliage back after flowering is over.
