We were at first skeptical about introducing a spikemoss to our garden. Over time, we have come to admire the feathery chartreuse foliage of Selaginella kraussiana 'Aurea' and its ability to serve as a groundcover in a woodland garden. For us it is reliably evergreen but we must be careful to water it during our dry summers or risk browning the mossy foliage. Grow this under small shrubs or in companionship with ferns and other shade loving small perennials. Any plant with golden foliage is useful to light up a dark garden.
