I would defer to the expert, Julius, on anything to do with cultivating
members of the Lasieae, but on the matter of the habit of L. spinosa, I can
say that it is very variable: from tightly clumping erect-stemmed forms
through decumbent to stoloniferous ones.
Like the degree of dissection of the leaf blade, it can be partly accounted
for by environment, but only partly: plants with different habit can still
be differentiated when they are grown under identical conditions.
