Heath Pearlwort or Irish Moss
Sagina subulata is a hardy, evergreen perennial that is a useful ground cover plant. It does not mind a little trampling and its foliage is an attractive bright green.
It has several uses in the garden: to decorate paving, a rock garden or add greenery to a Japanese garden around the base of a bonsai.
A very handy moss, indeed!
