Perennial Plant Pick of the Week – Sagina

Sagina subulata

Nature seems to be celebrating our Midsummer Night’s Dream Rewards Club Party theme. Sagina is blooming beautifully now. It is our staff’s perennial pick of the week. This lovely ground cover is right out an enchanted woodland forest.

Sagina subulata Irish Moss features tiny white star-shaped flowers at the ends of the stems. Its tiny needle-like leaves emerge light green in spring, turning emerald green in color the rest of the year. Sagina subulata ‘Aurea’ Scotch Moss has similar leaves, gold in spring, turning lime green in color the remainder of the year. Scotch Moss also features tiny white star-shaped flowers.
