Irish Moss - Heirloom Seeds, Perennial Groundcover Seeds
As the name suggests, Irish Moss is a European Native. This thick, dense mat of tiny leaves grows best in moist, well-drained soils to sandy, grave soil. It can be grown in woodland settings, over or between rocks, or between stepping stones.
The bright green leaves are evergreen and the small white flowers are star-shaped. Irish Moss is deer resistant and is a great choice for a ground cover to prevent any weeds from moving in.
