Sanguisorba hupehaensis

A great perennial all around, with handsome pinnate foliage and 30″ spikes that hold furry upright magenta catkin-like flowers. Beautiful. Blooms June-August in rich soil with regular irrigation. Not a fussy perennial by any means but it hails from Japan a summer rainfall climate and if you mimic that watering regime in your garden its simple. Completely herbaceous (deciduous). Seems to respond to rich conditions very well. Match with other perennials of similar culture such as Echinacea, Agastache, Erigeron. Forms tight but expanding clumps.  Wonderful  cut flower. Excellent pollinator perennial as well as visitations from Butterflies. Long lived perennial. Full sun to very light shade. If you remove spent flowers you may get a second round of flowers Tolerates heavy soil, with irrigation.
