Additional Information About Scotch Moss

It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 1 foot to 2 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in loam or clay soil that is well drained or moderately drained. In the spring and summer Scotch Moss produces white flowers. The foliage is yellow and chartreuse in color.

Scotch Moss can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings, in containers or planters, as a border or edger, as a groundcover or between stepping stones and pavers and also in rock or xeriscape gardens, theme gardens, cottage gardens or perennial gardens.


More About Scotch Moss...

Scotch Moss, Sagina subulata 'Aurea', is an extremely popular groundcover plant that forms a very low moss-like carpet of bright neon-yellow foliage. Tiny little white flowers begin to appear in late spring and are held just above the foliage on short, thin stalks.

Scotch Moss is an excellent choice for filling in between the gaps of stepping stones or pavers, in the rock garden, or as a lawn substitute in relatively small areas. It can also be very useful as an attractive soil cover in container gardens.

Scotch Moss is easy to grow however dislikes both drought and consistently soggy soils. Plant it in well-drained moist soils. It prefers sun bot will tolerate some shade during the afternoon hours, especially in hotter areas of the South. In our trial gardens in Zone 8 of central Georgia the Irish Moss has performed much better than Scotch Moss during the summer months.

Scotch Moss is easily divided in early spring or fall by cutting up the clump into smaller pieces.
