    These burrs are really striking and have the annoying habit of really sticking onto shoelaces when walked through – a sure way to spread seed.

    Get rid of it while you can!
    It (or at least the very similar-looking Acaena novae-zelandiae) is proving a dreadful invasive weed in parts of Britain – worst in coastal sand dunes.

    I suppose there are actually advantages to our dreary, wet winters in Vancouver. Seeds such as these do not generally overwinter. This species is not weedy locally, nor are any other acaenas, as far as I know.
