Planting tip
Soak the rootball of your plant in a bucket of water to wet thoroughly prior to planting. For extra goodness, add a bit of liquid fertiliser.
Acaena novae-zelandiae
Height: 0.15m;  Spread: 1m
Piripiri (Ground Cover)
Vivid green foliage. Hardy and vigorous. If humidity is high, plant it in a windy, exposed site.
Photo gallery:
Growing along the coast near Nugget Point, Catlins. ID kindly provided by Christchurch Botanical Gardens.
This plant makes a great ground-cover where there's a bit of extra moisture you need mopping up. Awesome foliage, a bit Seuss-like in appearance, and if you trim the flower heads before they turn into hooks the annoyance of them getting everywhere is removed! (Nov2015)
