Salad Burnet 'Tanna' (Sanguisorba Pink Tanna) Herb in 9cm Pot

This lovely S. officinalis form has glossy green foliage and masses of pink rounded flowers from midsummer onwards. Sunny open spot. Height 60cm-80cm. Salad Burnet or Sanguisorba minor is a perennial semi-evergreen plant that will provide abundant leaves for most of the year, and is a really lovely filler in the border with its unusual foliage and mildly flavoured leaves.

Salad Burnet prefers moist fertile soil, and will tolerate sun or partial shade. Producing globe shaped pink flowers on tall stems in summer, this herb is cultivated for it's leaf, and the flowering shoots must be removed quickly to maintain good leaf production. The leaves have a lovely mild taste, and will add depth to salads and a herby freshness when chopped into mayonnaise.

Herb Usage

Salad Burnet 'Tanna' is cultivated as a culinary herb with an aromatic fruity spearmint flavour and can be used in mint sauces and jellies. Excellent when added to the cooking of new potatoes.
