Sanguisorba menziesii

Sanguisorba menziesii
Menzies' burnet
Sanguisorba menziesii

Common name Menzies' burnet
Family rosaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4)
Flowers red (summer)
Size 30"
Light sun-part shade

Blue-gray foliage, dark red blooms. Looks very much like the S. tenuifolia var. purpurea we had had in the garden for a few years before trying this species. Ours have not been nearly as floriferous as online references suggest they should be, so I'm withholding judgment as to its identity for now.

Menzies' burnet

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
