Acaena caesiiglauca


Silver New Zealand Burr

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.005.100


New Zealand Burrs are easy-to-grow alpine plants. This species forms a mat of lacy grey-blue foliage, bearing interesting greenish flowers that mature into copper-red burrs during the summer months. A good choice for between paving stones or as an edging. Nice also in the rock garden, but plants can grow beyond where they are wanted, so keep a firm upper hand. Evergreen in mild winter regions. May be clipped back in early spring. Easily divided in early fall or spring. Excellent cover for small spring-flowering bulbs of all kinds.
