Sanguisorba canadensis / Canadian Burnet


A showy wildflower of floodplain meadows and moist prairies. Abundant spikes of white flowers draw pollinators. Beautiful, light green foliage concentrates morning dew and rain along their toothy margins.

Great for rain gardens, moist sites, and thrives in average soil, too.
