Irish Moss (Sagina subulata) is one of our most popular plants! This beautiful ground cover has dense tufts of slender stems which grow together to form a lush carpet of green. Small, star-shaped, white flowers completely cover Irish Moss in spring. This plant is an excellent choice for woodland areas, along streams, on small slopes or around ponds and water features.
