Common Name: Salad Burnet, Garden Burnet, Small Burnet
Latin Name:Sanguisorba minor
Family Name: Rosaceae
Although there are no known hazards, Salad 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. Salad 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.
