Pepper your planting schemes with the plum-coloured puffball flowers of Sanguisorba 'Proud Mary', also know as 'Burnet'. Give this one a spot in a sunny border and she’ll proudly flounce an airy haze of ball-like blooms which waft around in the breeze in their own effortless, carefree way. Quintessentially informal with added wildlife factor, the nectar-rich flower heads are a popular stop off for pollinators like bees and butterflies too!

Each upright stem of Sanguisorba 'Proud Mary' produces multiple raspberry red flowers, their relatively subtle nature is chic and subdued but when planted in close groups the flowers collaborate to make a really plush block of plum colour for your planting scheme. Over the years this fully hardy perennial forms a chunky, established clump, creating that much-loved breezy, natural look associated with informal mixed borders or prairie schemes.
