Acaena caesiiglauca

Bidibidi (Glaucous Bidibid)

Description

This native blue groundcover is a creeping herb with bright blue leaves. It thrives if grown in full sun brightening the leaf colour and creates an excellent feature in rockeries. The natural habitat of this Bidibidi is the South Island mountain and sub-alpine grassland and it is also found on open ground. Acaena caesiiglauca forms large patches that does not have underground runners. This plant flowers in summertime which then leads to pom-pom like seed heads that grow above the foliage.

The growth pattern of an Acaena caesiiglauca is approximately 5-10cm in height and will spread 60cm across.
