SHEARING Shearing is for lambs and lavender. This is not an appropriate term for the care of most herbaceous plants since we do not use shears on them. WINTER CARE Put your garden to bed for the long dormancy of winter. It is best to let your perennials go fully dormant before cutting them back for winter. Allow the iris to turn yellow and nut-brown, and let your peonies go through their nice reds, oranges, and golds. Cut lilies back after all leaves have turned; your cut should be at a sharp angle so some water will run off.
Common Name: Sheepsburr, New Zealand burr, redspine sheep’s burr. Origin: New Zealand, southeastern Australia. Preferred Conditions: Any average to poor, well-drained soil. Plants are drought tolerant once established. Light: Sun to part shade. Management: You can cut plants back in autumn (to control spread) and remove dead, spent ﬂower heads and stems, but this is optional, not necessary. When the mats become bare and open, remove the central portions in spring or fall; lift and replant from the fuller sections.
They also do very well in containers and make a good cut ﬂower for fresh arrangements. Flowers are edible (do avoid the bitter calyx) and make a good addition to green salads; enjoy the butterﬂies, bees, and hummingbirds that will be attracted to them in late summer. ~ Susan Buckles Scientiﬁc Name: From the Greek agan (“very much”) and stachys (“ear of wheat”).
