Sagina subulata

Sagina subulata

Sagina subulata - A Soft and Versatile Ground Cover Sagina subulata, commonly known as Irish Moss, is a soft and versatile perennial that provides a dense, moss-like ground cover. Perfect for rock gardens, between stepping stones, and as a lawn substitute, Irish Moss brings both beauty and functionality to various garden settings. The standout feature of Sagina subulata is its lush, green foliage that forms a dense mat, resembling moss. This low-growing plant produces tiny, star-like white flowers from late spring to summer, adding a delicate touch of beauty. The fine, tufted foliage is evergreen, providing year-round interest and a soft texture to the garden. Irish Moss is ideal for filling in gaps and creating a lush, green carpet in difficult-to-grow areas. Caring for Sagina subulata is straightforward, making it suitable for gardeners of all experience levels. Plant Irish Moss in well-drained, sandy or loamy soil and ensure it receives plenty of sunlight, though it can also thrive in partial shade. Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during dry periods, but avoid waterlogging, as it prefers slightly drier conditions. To maintain a tidy appearance and encourage dense growth, trim back any overgrown foliage as needed. In late autumn, a light mulch can help protect the plant through winter. With its low maintenance needs and attractive, moss-like foliage, Sagina subulata is a wonderful addition to any garden, providing a soft and green ground cover that enhances the beauty of various garden elements.
