The Q&A Archives: Planting between flagston

Question: What do you recommend to plant between flagstone on a patio. Right now we have the cracks filled with sand and weeds are sprouting everywhere! What do you think we could do?

Answer: Sagina subulata, commonly called Irish Moss, or Scotch Moss, is a possibility. It takes full sun and regular water, but although it's called moss, it doesn't require the woodsy environment associated with a moss. It needs good drainage and can take some foot traffic. Or, creeping Thyme is a plant you might consider. It's low growing and will be happy between the flagstones. Hope these plants work well for you.
