This easy-to-grow small Chinese Selaginella moellendorffii has proven to be a reliable performer in our garden as well as a favorite with visitors. Each clump makes a 5" tall x 1' wide mound and, in climates with milder winters, the height can exceed 1'. The ferny green foliage takes on a delightful russet color in winter. Each frond bears tiny plantlets (your new word for the day is "gemmiferous") that drop off and form new colonies where they land...great for a difficult site in the woodland garden!
