More Information About Selaginella

There are about 700 species of selaginella, a unique prehistoric fern relative. Native to variable climates (including North Carolina) from tropical to dry and from sun to shade; the genus Selaginella is truly a diverse group. We offer several of the easy-to-grow perennial woodland selaginella species. Selaginella plants are great as groundcovers near hostas, Solomon's Seal, and other bold-foliaged perennials.

Selaginella leaves are soft to the touch and low growing...a great groundcover filler for the woodland garden, pathway or shaded container. Some selaginella species are very drought-tolerant but others like marshy spots. The drought tolerant selaginella species may even turn brown and curl up during a drought, but will rehydrate with no problems once rain finally arrives.
