New Zealand Burr 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. The spherical flower-heads are followed by dark red burrs, with pinkish-red spines in mid-summer.
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 in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Plants are evergreen in mild regions.
