Day 219: Sanguisorba 'Tanna'

Daily details from the garden to bring you inspiration throughout the year


There are times of year when minimalism and restraint can be watchwords in the garden, bringing with them a sense of tranquil serenity. I’m not convinced it’s worth striving for this while surrounded by the effervescence of summer – best just to go with the energy of the season and embrace the rampant growth all around. And so while a swathes of the burnet Sanguisorba ‘Tanna’ might seem a little noisy – all crazy hair and raspberry beads – somehow it seems perfectly to capture the moment. Just add golden evening light and sangria.
