Shorter an earlier blooming burnet, that is native to state Washington, Alaska and British Columbia.
30-36" tall x 18" wide clumps. Oval maroon flower heads in June/July (in hotter climates earlier and for shorter time), nice gray-green divided leaves.
Sun, half shade, adaptable to many soil types, but prefers heavier or average soils (moderately fertile), that don't get too dry for too long, so medium moist to moist or slightly wet soils (naturally grows in bogs and swampy soils).
In hotter climates will appreciate some afternoon shade and cooler position (so far it seems to do fairly well in hot and humid south central Indiana in half shaded area, and seems to tolerate summer droughts too).
Deer and rabbit resistant. Attracts butterflies and pollinators.
Hardy in zones 4 to 7/8.
For sunny border in cooler climates (north east, coastal areas), or half shade beds or meadow plantings. Combine with Alchemilla, Brunnera, Bergenia, Eupatorium, Chelone, Hibiscus moscheutos and hybrids, moisture loving Iris (I. sibirica, x lousiana, virginica, versicolor and hybrids), Phlox paniculata and hybrids, Physostegia, Rudbeckia and grasses like Calamagrostis, Panicum, Pennisetum.
Pot size : square 3.5" x 4" deep perennial pot
