Sanguisorba obtusa (Sanguisorba obtusa)

Pink bottle-brush flowers over a long season. For sun or part shade and a soil that doesn't dry out

Sanguisorbas are perennials growing from rhizomes. They are found in the nothern hemisphere, mostly growing in grasslands. Different species range in height from two to six feet

It forms a clump but does not run. I have found the odd seedling not only one or two. It is a prairie plant so really prefers a sunny spot so I'm not sure how well it will do in shade
