Lycopodium

(Lycopodiaceae - club moss family)
Club moss. About 450 species of evergreen perennials, chiefly of tropical and subtropical regions but with a few species extending into temperate areas. The club mosses are actually more closely related to ferns than to mosses. Ancient, tree-size club moss species were once among the dominant forms of plant life on earth, and were major contributors to our present-day coal reserves. The spores which club mosses produce were once employed extensively as photographic flash powder, among other uses.

tree club moss


moss, native, rock garden, part shade - shade
eastern North America

With their upright stems, horizontal branches, and finely divided foliage, the individual plants much resemble miniature evergreen trees, complete with small spore-bearing cones. In a congenial location, tree club moss will spread by underground stems to form a colony. Prefers a moist but well-drained, humusy soil in partial shade; most often seen in the forest understory (but sometimes grows in full or nearly full sun). Can't ship to CA, WA, AZ, or OR.
