Info

Peacock club moss is an extraordinary small foliage plant. Trailing branches are clad in surreal green blue as well as green-a great effect. In winter it takes on tints of maroon and orange. Perfect for shady locations with rich well drained soil that retains moisture. Excellent at the base of large Rhododendrons with ferns and Hosta. Regular water in part shade to shade.

This creeping fern ally is spectacular as a ground cover in terrariums performing like a champ under low light. It's the low light which brings out the deep shimmering peacock blue.

These fern-like plants have low-growing, trailing stems that have beautiful pinkish-green new growht that matures to a deep blue green with a metallic blue sheen. It makes a great trailing plant for pots, baskets, terrariums, or as a perennial tropical groundcover.

Info

Peacock moss (a prehistoric fern relative) is one of my favorite groundcovers for the woodland garden...I bet I say that to all the selaginellas. The low, spreading habit and the semi-evergreen metallic aquamarine foliage, overlaid on a green background, are sure to make visitors stop to admire this gem. The color is best after the new growth emerges in late spring.
