Acaena caesiiglauca-New Zealand Burr

Acaena or New Zealand Burr grow by rhizomes spreading out from the parent plant so these rooted shoots can be cut from the parent plant in either the spring or the fall, but be aware the plant can become invasive. Acaena reaches a height of 2"-4", will take light foot traffic, and blooms throughout the summer, green blooms which turn into red burrs either on green or silver leaves. The plant is drought tolerant, evergreen in warmer zones, is deer resistant, and prefers full sun.
