Tiny, Soft, and Dark Green

The Sagina Irish Moss, 'Sagina subulata', is one of the most popular ground covers around.  The lush, deep green foliage stays compact and produces tiny white flower which appear late spring into early summer.

Sagina looks like a scratch-proof sponge, but feels so much softer. This plant spreads rapidly to form a carpet that looks especially nice against gray stone!

It is extremely dense and spreads by creeping stems to form a mossy carpet.  It has a plant height of 1-2” and a spread of 6-12”.

‘Irish Moss’ performs best in full sun and in moist, well-drained soil.   It dislikes drought and the other extreme, wet feet.  

‘Irish Moss is just the ground cover you need between paving stones, rock walls, or as an edging plant that tolerates moderate foot traffic!
