Scotch Moss is a ground-hugging perennial that only grows about an inch tall and about 12 inches wide.
It will grow in a circular mossy mound and has a wonderful bright lime green colour with a soft fluffy texture.
It likes to grow in full sun to partial shade and is quite low maintenance requiring nothing more than regular watering.
