Scotch Moss (Sagina subulata ‘Aurea’) is a plant worth having! Bright golden tufts of slender stems grow together to form a lush carpet of gold moss on the ground. Small, star-shaped, white flowers engulf Scotch Moss in the spring, and will brighten any dreary spot. Scotch Moss must have enough sunlight to keep compact.
