Originally from New Zealand, Acaena inermis 'Purpurea' is truly enchanting!
Its foliage makes it look like a tiny fern and has an exceptional purplish bronze to olive green hue.
An evergreen ground cover plant which is very effective en masse and it grows well with spring-flowering bulbs.
In the garden, we use it in the alpine rockery, to cover the base of a low wall, to decorate paving or the edges of paths. It's worth trying it in association with a Carex.
