Bronze New Zealand Burr
Acaena microphylla

Print Plant


New Zealand Burrs are easy-to-grow alpine plants. This species forms a bronzy mat of lacy foliage, bearing interesting greenish flowers that mature into copper-red burrs during the summer months. A good choice for between flagstones, as an edging or lawn substitute. Although nice in the rock garden, 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.
