Irish Moss (Sagina subulata) can be grown as a soft, vivid replacement for lawn grass in areas with mild climates and relatively cool summers.

Up to 2 inches tall and indefinitely wide

Tiny, white, star-shaped flowers bloom in the spring. Small, bright green, awl-shaped leaves grow on thin stems.
Pests & Diseases
None serious
Landscape Use
Great as a groundcover and in rock gardens
Care Practices
Plant in moist, rich soil in an area with full sun to half shade. This groundcover is moderately cold hardy and can tolerate foot traffic, a variety of soils, and urban conditions. Do not overfertilize, as the habit will become mounded instead of moss-like.
