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.
