Plant / Product Features:
Moss-like plant which forms a dense mound up to 1m across. Does well in gravel but happy in soil as long as drainage is good. Prefers full sun. Need protection from prolonged periods of frost. The foliage is a little larger and looser than Scleranthus uniflorus. More prone to losing their tight form if light levels are too low. Susceptible to fungal attack if conditions are too wet. Will die back if too dry. Free-draining planting medium is essential. If it browns off in the middle pull out the brown pieces and remove a healthy piece from the outside and replant in the middle.

Landscaping Uses:
Great in Japanese or native gardens. Forms an attractive mound of contrasting humps and hollows. Bright green cushion appearance makes it a popular garden and container plant.
