Salad Burnet, Garden Burnet, Small Burnet

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Salad Burnet, Garden Burnet, Small Burnet
  • Latin Name: Sanguisorba minor
  • Family Name: Rosaceae

Although there are no known hazards, Burnet does contain tannins.  A higher concentration of tannins is found in older leaves, so it is relatively safe to feed young leaves, but only as part of a wider, varied diet.  Burnet is usually found in the wild but can be seen growing in the garden. 

Although the predominant flower colour is dark red, some varieties have white or pink flowers.  See Burnet
