White Japanese burnet (Sanguisorba tenuifolia var. alba or Sanguisorba tenuifolia ‘Alba’) produces nodding heads of tiny white flowers in late summer atop 5- to 7-foot-tall stems over non-creeping clumps of ferny green leaves that turn yellow in fall. Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8.
Please be aware that I collected these seeds from open-pollinated plants in my garden, and I also grow other color variants of this species, including purple (purpurea) and pink (rosea, I assume). I have never had seed from a white-flowered plant produce purple flowers, but I do occasionally find pink-flowered variants among seedlings from my Sanguisorba tenuifolia var. alba seeds.
Harvested in September 2021. Each packet contains at least 20 seeds.
