Quick Overview:

This compact, variegated plant is the perfect choice for those looking for a container plant or a small scale plant for the front of the border. Tiny, deep green leaves have creamy white margins that form a dense, petite clump of foliage. Bright green stems hold long, oval-shaped rosy red flower panicles—reminiscent of matchsticks—that pop out the top of the plant. This perennial has been in retail in Japan for a number of years, and is recently making a splash in the European and American markets.

Description

Sanguisorba officinalis var. microcephala is native to wet grassy meadows and streamsides in serpentine, high pH soils in the Western US. In the garden, Sanguisorba ‘Little Angel’ grows best in moist soils, but it grows fine in all but the driest sites.
