Sanguisorba hakusanensis, also called Korean mountain burnet[1] or lilac squirrel is a species in the genus Sanguisorba (family Rosaceae), native to Korea and Japan.[2] Its Japanese name means "coming from Haku", a mountain in Japan. It is attractive in the garden for its long lasting pink-lavender, fuzzy arching "plumes", as well as its gray-green, heavily scalloped leaves. This flowering plant grows to about 30 inches tall when in flower and prefers full sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soil.[3]
