Burnet

Rosaceae Sanguisorba minor Scop,

Source: Magness et al. 1971

The plant is a hardy perennial 1 to 2.5 feet in height, with long compound leaves, each with 6 to 10 pairs of small leaflets. It is sometimes grown in gardens for the fresh young Ieaves which are used in salads. While it has long been listed in gardening manuals, it is not grown commercially in U.S., and so far as known not in other countries.
