New Zealand Burr, Acaena saccaticupula, is an easy-to-grow alpine plant, forming a low mat of blue, fern-like leaves, above which greenish flowers are borne on short stems in summer. These are followed by dark red burrs.
Acaena saccaticupula 'Blue Haze' is a particularly striking variety. It has very finely cut leaves in almost pewter, which have a mauve hue towards the pink-red stems. It's ideal for growing in rock gardens, containers and at the front of borders. It's very tolerant of poor soil and works well when planted with spring-flowering bulbs.
For best results grow Acaena saccaticupula 'Blue Haze' in moist but well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Plants are evergreen in mild regions.
