Irish Moss

Sagina Subulata



Excellent ground cover and also very good for use between flagstones in pathways.  Tolerates light foot traffic, but not for a heavily used pathway.  Nice choice for the rock garden, too.

Zones: 4 - 8
Height: 1 - 4 inches
Full to Partial Sun..............Light shade in the south is a must

An evergreen ground cover.  The mossy foliage grows just 1 - 3 inches tall and creates the effect of a moss-covered meadow.

During early to midsummer when it blooms, it is covered with small white flowers.

Needs moisture retentive, gritty, well-drained soil.  Will do poorly in wet, soggy ground.

Not a true moss, but these tiny plants resemble moss and are terrific planted around flagstones, in containers or used as a small scale ground cover.

Seed:  Pkt is 200+ seeds.  Note:  Seeds are very fine (small).  Direct sowing is not recommended.
