Seem to have lost the label for this so can't remember the variety, white flowers, which I almost missed, followed by these burrs which are much prettier.

Acaena microphylla Copper Carpet? I keep looking in my local nurseries for this, haven't seen it for years.

I agree Simbad.....the burrs are amazing. Nice leaf too.

I looked up Copper Carpet Siris and it does look similar the leaves on mine were much more bronze when I bought it but they seem to have gone more green now ,unless they change later in the year ?
Thanks Linda Siris sent me a really nice blue leaved one, which is doing really well so when I spotted this I had to buy it :-)

If I wear sandals and socks, the burrs stick to the soft material and get transferred around the garden, to start another plant.

Oh good to know they're easy from seed Siris I'd like a few more, lots of little crevices between rocks and logs on the new waterfall ;-)
