Sanguisorba canadensis (American burnet) forms dense clumps of compound foliage, above which spikes of white flowers emerge in mid summer to fall.
Unlike some of the more commonly cultivated red burnets, the unique white flower clusters of this native plant can be rather large, up to 8″ long by an inch across!
