Sagina subulata

Pearlwort, Irish Moss

Sagina subulata

This is a low, mat-forming plant with tiny green or golden (Sagina Subulata ‘Aurea’) leaves and tiny white flowers in summer. Hardy and cold resistant, this plant resembles a moss, though it is quite clearly not one. It is effective amongst rocks and stones in a sunny or lightly shaded position.
