Comments: This selection of the Club Moss is noted for its red foliage color. It adds a distinctive feature when combined with other plants. Provide a fertile, moist soil rich in humus for best performance. Can tolerate more sunlight in the upper range of its growth. Must have partical shade in the hot, Gulf Coast region.
