🎄Christmas Green🎄

Ground cedar is an attractive evergreen forest groundcover that spreads by underground runners. The scientific name is Diphasiastrum digitatum. Its older Latin name, Lycopodium digitatum means “wolf’s foot”. It’s a conversation piece when seen on a hike.

Since ground cedar is evergreen and the vegetation forms on a long branch that is very flexible and can essentially serve as a rope, it was often used for holiday decorations.

Unfortunately, it is very hard to transplant. The roots seem to require specific soil fungi, so you can’t just dig up a clump and transplant it.
