Acaena (Acaena Microphylla)
- This low growing ground cover plant is some times referred to as New Zealand Burrs. Acaena seeds form easy-to-grow alpine plants with brilliant red blooms. This species forms a bronzy mat of lacy foliage, bearing interesting greenish flowers that mature into bright red burrs during the summer months. Acaena Microphylla is a good choice for between flagstones, as an edging or lawn substitute.
