Scotch Moss - Sagina subulata 'Aurea'

Regular price $5.99

A golden version of the popular Irish Moss. The chartreuse green color is a great way to brighten up any miniature garden. Scotch moss is reliable and somewhat drought-tolerant to a certain extent, but maintain the watering in any extremes to keep it at its best. It is best to grow this perennial in a spot with mid-day shade.

When it's contained on all sides in a pot, it will get more dense. In ground it will gradually mound and you'll have your own miniature grassy knoll.  

Divide every couple of years in late winter, when the moss has nowhere left to grow and gets root bound, it will start to brown.
