Description:

Irish Moss is a luxurious, evergreen ground cover plant which grows just 1 - 2 inches tall. It can be used as lovely color between flagstones or spilling over rocks. Dense tufts of slender stems grow together to form a lush carpet of green. Small, star-shaped, white flowers cover this flowering ground cover plant from late spring until mid-summer. Beautiful Carpet of green and gold Use Irish moss where a very low, fine-textured carpet of green or gold is desired, such as around stepping stones, between flagstones, or at the edges of a path as they tolerate light foot traffic.

Benefits of Irish moss:

Foot Traffic Friendly: Most groundcovers are utilized in landscape areas away from heavy traffic or in conjunction with stones or pavers to create walking areas. However, irish moss can take light or even moderate foot traffic.

Guards against weeds: The dense and weaved green carpet formed by Irish moss crowds out most weeds.

Irish moss also allows your soil to retain more moisture, reducing overall water usage.

Stability for Slopes: Irish moss is a low maintenance option for slopes, the roots help control soil erosion from heavy winter rains.

Perfect for a serene and bare-foot friendly path, Irish moss is also an excellent plant for rock gardens, where it forms a soft carpet of evergreen color amidst the gruff boulders.

It is well suited for container plantings, where it will slowly creep to cover open soil. Growing just about 1-2 inch tall and boasting pretty white flowers, Irish moss is a nearly perfect plant for all gardens. The very tiny Irish Moss seeds create a moss-like, emerald-green foliage that forms a compact 1 - 2 inch tall carpet.

Sagina Subulata ground cover is excellent for planting between flagstones. Grown as a lawn substitute, it creates the effect of a moss-covered meadow.

Growing Irish Moss: Sow Irish Moss seeds in starter flats, press the tiny seeds into soil but do not cover. Kept at 64 - 72F,(17-22 C) germination is in 14 - 21 days. Transplant into the garden 6 - 9 inches apart. The ground cover seed must be kept moist continuously. It will be adaptable to mostly sunny locations in cooler climates or partial shade in warmer climates. Irish Moss ground cover needs moisture retentive, gritty, well-drained soil. Do not cover seeds
