Salad Burnet - Knowledgebase Question

Last year, I planted a Salad Burnet plant which I had bought from a nearby herb farm. However, this year the plant seems to have died. As it being the beginning of the month of May, shouldn't the herb have begun to grow? I thought that Salad Burnet was a perennial, but am I correct on this matter? Do I have to replant this herb annually if I want to grow it?

Salad Burnet (Sanguisorba minor) is a perennial. It grows from spreading rhizomes. It is right on the borderline for your winters, so the cold might have got to it, but I'd give it a bit longer to see if it sprouts fresh growth. Good luck!
