A Fan club moss from JOE SOUTH CAROLINA

Posted on |

Found an interesting plant to me, searched all over and can not identify it, It easily roots in a container and is quite pretty but help me if you can please

Hi Joe,

this is a nice evergreen native plant called running cedar, Lycopodium digitatum.  It actually has had several scientific names, the current one being Diphasiastrum digitatum.  It is a club moss, a distant relative of the ferns, which reproduces by spores.
