Sagina Irish Moss

Item #48939


Cold hardy ground cover that tolerates foot traffic

Spreads indefinitely

A ground cover that mimics the appearance of moss but is actually a beautiful flowering plant, Sagina Irish Moss is a perennial evergreen plant. This highly sought-after plant is adorned with round green buds that develop into petite white flowers come springtime. The plant's dense, luxuriant mat of creeping stems is covered in soft clusters of vibrant green leaves, creating a captivating carpet for your garden.

Known scientifically as Sagina subulata and commonly referred to as Irish moss, heath pearlwort, or awl-leaf pearlwort, this herbaceous plant has a slow to medium growth rate and an indefinitely spreading habit. It's also known to self-seed under optimal conditions. Despite its delicate texture, the plant can withstand light foot traffic, making it an ideal choice for planting around cobblestones, between pavers, or along garden paths. It's also perfect for covering banks and slopes, and can even serve as a lawn substitute in smaller spaces. Plus, it adds a delightful splash of color and texture to mixed containers.

Irish moss is a hardy plant that thrives in sunny to partially shady locations with consistently moist, well-draining soil. It may appreciate some afternoon shade in hotter climates. This low-maintenance plant is generally free from pests and diseases, making it a hassle-free addition to your garden. Plant Irish moss to soften the look of hardscapes.
