It belongs to the Lycopodiaceae family, which includes other species such as ground pines and spike mosses. The plant has a unique appearance, with thin, wiry stems that grow up to 30 cm in height and fan-shaped leaves resembling a bird's tail feathers.

The plant contains several active compounds, including lycopodium and lycopene, which have been shown to possess antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Fan Clubmoss is an evergreen perennial that grows best in hardiness zones 4 to 7. Fanclub moss is used in most settings as a groundcover because it can spread over an area quickly if given the optimum growth specifications.


The horizontal stems hold small, scale-like leaves that are pale to medium green in color. In comparison, the central branch of the plant is medium to dark green and has similar small, scale-like leaves.

Nearly all the stems are arranged in a fan shape and appear identical to cedar. The evergreen perennial is naturally found in woodland areas along with oak trees or conifers. Once the plant is established in the soil, it will spread quickly through stems just below the soil’s surface.

Fanclub moss can reach up to 5 to 10 inches tall in its lifetime. It requires a woodland-type environment to grow optimally, with its soil needing to be well-draining and acid with organic matter mixed into it.

Fan Clubmoss Looks Like Tiny Pine Trees


For the organic matter, it is best to blend shredded leaves and pine needle mulch into the first 4 to 5 inches of soil before planting. The plant needs to be located in an area that receives partial to full shade, as it does not tolerate direct sunlight well.

The intolerance to sunlight makes it perfect for shade gardens and fills areas of a yard that don’t grow grasses well. It has a shallow water requirement, preferring the soil to be dried out between watering, and it is tolerant of the low water conditions of drought.

Itrequires very little maintenance in pruning, only to be cut back or transplanted when its spread needs to be controlled. The evergreen perennial is both heat- and cold-tolerant, which allows it to give visual interest in gardens and yards during multiple seasons.

The cedar-like appearance ofit makes it a great holiday decoration piece, either fresh or dried.
