Salad burnet (Sanguisorba minor) is a pretty wildflower of chalk grassland. It has pale green flower heads which have a hint of red. The young leaves are edible and with a cool fresh cucumber flavour and fragrance. They are ideal to add to salads or salad dressings as the name suggests. In addition they are perfect to add to a cold drink on a Summer’s day. Salad burnet is easy to grow and perfect for any dry areas of the garden in sun or partial shade.
Other features:
Salad burnet has other medicinal properties, and can be used in herbal tea. The leaves freeze well for culinary use.

The plug plants may be included in our Apothecary or Coarse grassland plug plant collections.
