The bluest of blue!

Acaena buchananii is native to New Zealand.

We love this carpet plant for it pretty blue foliage that gives continuous ground cover throughout the year.

As an edging plant, beneath shrubs or to cover paving or a low wall, you should grow Acaena buchananii in ordinary, light, well-drained soil that is not too dry. Height: 5 cm. Sun or slight shade. Hardiness: - 15° C

Plant association with small bulbs: Ipheion, Galanthus, Crocus or as ground cover on a bed of slate chips.

Acanea can easily spread over an area of a square metre. However, it gows simply, so Acaena buchananii is easily kept in check by pulling up stems and roots. essai
