Fan Clubmoss - Lycopodium Clavatum

Fan Clubmoss, scientifically known as Lycopodium clavatum, is a unique and versatile plant with various landscaping benefits. Its distinctive appearance and adaptability make it a popular choice for enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of outdoor spaces. Unlike its name may suggest, it is not a true moss but a primitive vascular plant belonging to the Lycopodiaceae family.

This plant ships bare-root and dormant (no leaves or foliage) It will not green out until next spring.

Fan Clubmoss thrives in various environments.

One of the primary advantages of incorporating it into landscaping is its ability to adapt to different soil types, light conditions, and moisture levels, making it an ideal choice for gardens, parks, and other landscape projects. Its low-maintenance nature allows landscape designers to use it in areas that are difficult to access or where traditional landscaping methods may not be feasible.

Its dense and lush foliage provides excellent ground cover, effectively suppressing weed growth and erosion. Its mat-forming habit creates a carpet-like effect, giving landscapes a uniform and visually appealing appearance. As a result, it is commonly used to prevent soil erosion, making it an eco-friendly choice for landscape erosion control projects.

In addition to its aesthetic benefits, it also serves a functional purpose in landscaping. Due to its ability to keep moisture, it acts as a natural water reservoir, contributing to water conservation in the landscape. This characteristic makes it particularly useful in drought-prone areas where water conservation is a priority.

The plant can create a habitat for beneficial insects and small wildlife. Its dense and sheltered foliage offers nesting sites and protection for insects like ground beetles and spiders, which help to control harmful pests in the landscape. Furthermore, small critters can attract birds and other wildlife, adding to the biodiversity and ecological balance of the environment.

It is also utilized in landscaping to create striking visual accents and borders. Its vibrant green color and intricate texture add depth and interest to gardens, rockeries, and pathways. It can be used to define walkways, add borders to flower beds, or soften the edges of hardscapes, creating a natural and harmonious transition between different landscape elements.

In conclusion, it is a valuable asset in landscaping due to its adaptability, low-maintenance requirements, erosion control abilities, water retention properties, and contribution to biodiversity. It enhances the beauty and functionality of outdoor spaces, providing a versatile and environmentally-friendly option for landscape designers and enthusiasts.

Very cool!

The first thing I did was plant it. The second thing was show it off to my friends. It's truly lovely, enough so that my only complaint is to myself: I should have bought MORE.

fan clubmoss needs more water for shipment

The only issue I have with the fan clubmoss is the condition in which it arrived. It arrived in a plastic bag with barely moist, ground peat moss. Consequently, most of the fan clubmoss sprigs were rather dehydrated when they arrived. Since arrival, most if the sprigs have turned an unhealthy looking pale brown. All of the sprigs were planted outside in the garden upon arrival. These may survive, I'm not sure, but I'm hoping they will start growing this Spring.
My suggestion would be that the clubmoss plants should be wrapped in wet paper towels, rather than barely damp ground peat moss, for shipment. I would much rather receive lush, green clubmoss, than the drier, slightly green clubmoss I received. That being said, one nice clump did arrive bright green and healthy, and this clump remains healthy and green since being planted so will no doubt resume growth this Spring.
All other plants I have received from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery are still quite healthy. I would recommend this nursery.
