The Q&A Archives: Irish Moss

Question: I would like information on a plant called IRISH MOSS. Would it be suitable to grow in SE Pennsylvania (Zone 6) and what are its requirements? Thank You Lois Anderson

Answer: Sagina subulata makes a dense, compact, mosslike
mass of slender leaves on slender stems. Although they look
like moss, they won't grow well under the conditions that
suit true mosses. Provide rich, well-draining soil, full sun to
part shade, and occasional feeding with a slow-acting
fertilizer. It should grow in your area.
