Description

The pendulous pink catkin-like flowers of this unmistakable Korean Burnet are a real head turner, also called the Paintbrush plant (and you can see why); this incredible sanguisorba steals the show of any late summer and autumn border — and vase.

Care Tips

Encourage strong compact growth with a mid season chop. Divide plants in spring or autumn. Cut back stems close to ground level from late February through to the end of March.
