Burnet is a perennial herb native to Europe, Africa and Asia.  Being drought tolerant, it is often found in dry, grassy meadows and is planted in areas that require aid for erosion control.  Although Burnet can survive heat it also does well when the temperatures drop.  This plant works as an excellent food source for wildlife.  Burnet leaves are sometimes used in salads because their taste mildly resembles cucumbers.  Burnet should be planted after the last frost has passed, in an area that receives full sun.  It will tolerate some shade, especially in places that experience higher temperatures.  When provided the right growing conditions, Burnet will typically reseed itself.
