About this cultivar:

Sanguisorba 'Tanna' is a small burnet with deep ruby-red bobbles, perched on tall stiffer stems. Like other burnet, whether in the border or a meadow planting, or frost-covered in the garden’s winter light, their distinctive silhouette inspires much drama! A green bed of pinnate foliage with toothed leaflets launches a strong floral display that last into the winter long after the seed heads have dried out. In 2011 it was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (RHS AGM).
