Selaginella kraussiana 'Casa Flora's New'

Spikemoss

Semi-evergreen spreading unidentified new variety. A Florida fern expert who found it in his fern garden about three months after a hurricane. None of his fellow fern society members have been able to identify it. It forms a more fluffy loose growth and is excellent in summer shade containers and it should be over wintered in the home. Don't let it dry out. Excellent as a wide spreading groundcover or used in a terrarium.
