I got seeds of this plant as Sanguisorba tenuifolia White Elephant, but I'm not sure if this is correct. Before I post the pictures I would like to be sure.

It looks more like 'Pink Elephant.'

Yes, you are right, but first the flowers are white, later they turn pink.
Do I post the pictures in the database and if yes: which species do I choose?
I think the ' white elephant' is a cultivar and the seeds I got are from the 2nd or a later generation and they just turn back to the parent.
Maybe it's better not to post the pictures.
Please advise me Zuzu.

I would post them under 'Pink Elephant,' Jonna.

I got a mail about the Sanguisorba from a garden friend:

Hi, Jonna,
I noticed that your Sanguisorba tenuifolia 'White Elephant' photos are incorrectly posted under S. tenuifolia 'Pink Elephant' at AllThingsPlants. 'White Elephant' is a recognized cultivar in which the flowers start out white and age to pink. I realize that an administrator there pushed your photos into the wrong cultivar name but it was incorrect to do so and you may want to get it corrected since you really do have 'White Elephant'.
Just so you know...

What do you think Zuzu?
