Acaena microphylla

New Zealand Burr

Seed count: 25-30   
Acaena microphylla
Acaena microphylla
Native Region: New Zealand
Zone Range: 06-09
Preferred Climate: Alpine to Maritime Temperate
Harvest Date: Tuesday 16 October, 2018
Seed count: 25-30

A compact, low growing ground cover with small compound blue-green to copper coloured leaves. Small spherical flower clusters are followed by soft red burrs to 2cm across. Although these burrs look quite spiny, they are in fact soft.

The plants at VanDusen, that were the source of this seed, are particularly choice in that they have silver-blue foliage and pink burrs. A wonderful plant that is not yet generally available.

Sow seed in containers in an open frame in autumn or spring. Grow in moderately fertile well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.

Harvest Date: Tuesday 16 October, 2018
