Burnet-Saxifage - Pimpinella Saxifrage
Burnet-saxifrage is a downy, perennial member of the carrot family with a tough, slightly ridged stem and an umbel of white flowers. The basal leaves resemble those of Salad burnet hence the first part of its common name. Flowering occurs from May to September. It is found in grasslands, at the edge of woodlands. It has the ability to grow on dry soil due to its tap root. Burnet-saxifrage prefers short turf and is eventually lost when grasses become long.
Sow in the autumn as it requires cold for germination.
