Salad Burnet
(Poterium sanguisorba)

A hardy perennial, great for novice gardeners and gourmets. Attractive plant looks like rustic maiden hair fern and can be planted in rock gardens, flower beds, and containers. Leaves have a cucumber flavor and are added to salads, cold summer drinks, chopped and mixed with butter for a gourmet spread, and used as a garnish instead of dill with fish. Very easy to grow.
