Sagina subulata

(Irish Moss)  Fine little green leaves grow on low, spreading plants.  Creates a carpet of green in the garden.  One of the few plants to most closely resemble a living "lawn" for miniature gardens and landscapes.  Tiny white flowers bloom in summer, but plants are grown more for the foliage than the flowers. Can be divided.  Low growing habit makes it a beautiful miniature groundcover.
