More Information

Description Fill your garden with the lush, moss-like foliage of Irish moss (Sagina subulata)! The shamrock green foliage grows in dense clumps, forming a cushioned mat as it spreads through the garden. Hundreds of gentle, white flowers bloom on thin stems in the spring. While it may look soft, this plant is incredibly tough. This durable ground cover handles foot traffic with ease, making it an excellent option for edging pathways and filling between stepping stones. Plus, it's low maintenance, deer resistant, and easy to grow!  Perfect for beginners looking to fill tough-to-grow sites. Details Botanical name: Sagina subulata

Zone: 4 - 8
Sun exposure: Shade (< 4 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 1" x 12"
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Spring through fall
Uses: Alpine & rock, Container gardening, Edging, Ground cover, Naturalizing, Rock garden, Small spaces, Underplanting.

They did not survive....

The plants did not survive. I thought I would get seeds? I wanted seeds. The price is only for one small item.

I think your irish moss plants are good, and the ones I planted from this last spring are mostly just doing great. However the ones I got this fall were delayed in transit by FEDEX for almost 2 weeks and they are REALLY struggling. I hear that I can let you know in May if I need replacements or refund. They are plenty of work to plant so I am not totally happy. Actually I have not had great service with FEDEX, compared to UPS for instance.

Loved it at 1st!! But …

It was voluptuous at 1st and I showed it off lots, but even tho I watered it fairly regularly, it has browned down. Will it come back?

dead as a green doornail

I have a triangular section of yard that is in constant shade. I thought that this would be a good place for a "shade" plant. I placed 4 of the green Irish Moss in that area in April and throughout the spring and summer hoped that they would take root and grow. My hoping turned into disappointment as all have died. I would not recommend this plant.
