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 species. Selaginella plants are great as groundcovers near hostas, Solomon's Seal, and other bold-foliaged perennials.
Sleaginella (Spikemoss) Growing Conditions
Spikemoss leaves are soft to the touch and low growing...a great groundcover filler for the woodland garden, pathway or shaded container. Some species are very drought-tolerant but others like marshy spots. The drought tolerant species may even turn brown and curl up during a drought, but will rehydrate with no problems once rain finally arrives.
