Sagina subulata, Heath Pearlwort or IRISH MOSS SEEDS, Perfect In Garden, Lawn Substitue or In-Between Stones, Groundcover Heath Pearlwort, Zones 4-10

Sagina subulata (Heath Pearlwort or Irish Moss, syn. Sagina pilifera auct. non is a species of Sagina, native to Europe, from Iceland south to Spain, and east to southern Sweden and Romania. 

It occurs on dry sandy or gravelly soils

In just eight weeks after germination, the Irish moss becomes thick and full. Grow this luxurious, evergreen ground cover plant from seeds! Mossy foliage grows just 1 - 2 inches tall, for lovely color between flagstones or spilling over rocks. Dense tufts of slender stems grow together to form a lush carpet of green. Small, star-shaped, white flowers cover this flowering ground cover plant from late spring until mid-summer.

The very tiny Irish Moss seeds create a moss-like, emerald-green foliage that forms a compact 1 - 2 inch tall carpet. Grown as a lawn substitute, it creates the effect of a moss-covered meadow. Irish Moss is very soft to walk on barefoot, and it has a slightly spongy feel to it.

How to Grow Irish Moss: Sow Irish Moss seeds in starter flats, press the tiny seeds into soil but do not cover. Kept at 64 - 72F, germination is in 14 - 21 days. Transplant into the garden 6 - 9 inches apart. Irish Moss seeds can be direct sown into the garden or in-between stones. The ground cover seed must be kept moist continuously. It will be adaptable to mostly sunny locations in cooler climates or partial shade in warmer climates. Irish Moss ground cover needs moisture retentive, gritty, well-drained soil. The plants are hardy above -30F degrees.
