Salad Burnet Plug Plants Sanguisorba minor
Common names include drumstick, old man's pepper and poor man's pepper.
A low-growing native perennial with intricate evergreen foliage and rounded reddish pompom-like flower heads, salad burnet grows well in most soils, preferring a lighter chalky soil, and is deep-rooting and drought-resistant.
An ideal addition to your wildflower meadow, wildlife garden or herb garden, the leaves of salad burnet are edible and can be added to your salads and stews.
It is one of the RHS Plants for Pollinators and is an excellent nectar source for bees and other pollinating insects.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
