Sanguisorba minor attracts many different insects and forms attractive clumps and performs especially well in a bright and sunny position. Salad Burnet has decorative red flower heads, and the young foliage, when crushed, has a distinctive, cucumber-like taste that can enliven a summer salad. This was among the first plant to be taken to the New World by the Pilgrim colonists. Thomas Jefferson, who would later become the third president of the United States, once ordered 8 bushels of seed to plant 16 acres of cattle fodder.
