Ground Fern Moss is a hardy moss that is naturally found on all of the continents, except for Antarctica understandably. It thrives easily and can grow to cover large areas, typically advancing four to five feet in a single year. The Ground Fern Moss is like this name because it produces small stalks which grow leaf-like structures resembling a common fern. How amazing to have the opportunity to spread this shorter gorgeous fern-impostor all over your yard or whichever area it is desired. It makes a great addition to regions with running or standing water such as streams and ponds, and also gardens for a magical fairy feel. With a mind of its own and muscles to boot, it expertly traverses lawns, walkways, paths, stones, wood surfaces, and can even be used to create ornamental topiary. Ground Fern Moss can soak up to twenty times its weight in water so flooding won't be a worry and it provides excellent insulation for your yard.

It adapts to various soil conditions and does not quickly fall prey to health issues, but if it does a proper watering can revive it to its natural lush, emerald green state.
