Scleranthus uniflorus-New Zealand Moss

Propagating Scleranthus or New Zealand Moss can be done either in the spring or fall. The plant forms a tight hummock of moss looking plants and sometimes the clumps become patchy and die back in the center, so dig up the patch and separate the clumps with roots and transplant. It does not like wet feet but prefers a sandy or gravely soil in full sun or light shade and is drought tolerant but only in Zones 7-10. Inconspicuous green/white flowers appear in late summer and is best used as a filler between flagstones because it will take foot traffic, is also evergreen and deer resistant.
