In just eight weeks after germination, the Irish moss becomes thick and full.  It occurs on dry sandy or gravelly soil.  Please Note, Irish Moss WILL require plenty of water prior and after germination to promote a lush and luxurious evergreen ground cover.

  • 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.
