Ground cedar(Ground PIne)and Resurrection fern
Posted by Fred SC on January 7, 2018, 11:00 am, in reply to "Hardy tropical looking plants - game changers"
WE called the Ground Pine in Ky where I grew up in the Cumberlands. It was all over the back of my property there. IT is hard to transplant successfully. I have tried it three or four times. I gave it good drainage, acidic conditions and dappled shade and adequate water , but the longest I ever had it to live is about 2 years. IT is really type of club moss. I brought a Resurrection Fern fom the Low country and tried to start on water oak in Greer IT took, and I moved a start here when I moved. IT is living but has never spread in the five years I have been here. IT completely dries out and if it rains or you water it, viola it is back full steam ahead.
