A seedling strain of this classic, ground-hugging, moisture-loving, New Zealand beauty with, yes, hazy blue leaves. Best in full sun with regular summer water. To perhaps 4” tall and spreading moderately. Good in pots. Pet owners beware: the little, burr-like seeds stick to fur, leg hairs, and other unmentionables. Frost hardy to -10 °F, USDA zone 6.

Acaena pronounced (uh-KANE-uh) is a pretty evergreen groundcover native to New Zealand with handsome pinnate leaves. Wonderful contrast with bright greens and yellows. Mixes well with Rubus c. 'Golden Quilt'. Light shade with regular water when dry. To 4" tall-spread nearly indefinite. Roots as it grows and stabilizes soil. Flowers burr-like in summer. Better in rich rather than poor soil.
