Fan Clubmoss, also known as Diphasiastrum digitatom botanically, is a member of the Lycopodium moss genus.
This plant is primarily found in North America, growing in woodland and coastal regions. Fan Clubmoss is also known as crow's foot, ground cedar, and bear claw. Fan Club moss is not a moss; it is more of a fern since it reproduces via spores and has no seeds. It also has no vascular system and relies on the soil to give it nutrients. Fan Clubmoss is used as a decorative moss or a ground cover because of its vibrant green appearance all year.
Fan Clubmoss is an evergreen groundcover perennial plant that grows from 3 to 8 inches tall. Typically found in woodland and upland pine forests in South Carolina and other warm regions of the United States, Fan Clubmoss thrives best in dappled sunlight or light shade in moist, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Fan Clubmoss is drought tolerant; however, it thrives best with even moisture, so plant your Fan Clubmoss where it will receive nourishment through moist soil.
Fan Clubmoss is a primitive moss because its manner of reproduction is by spores instead of seeds. Most clubmosses emit "club-like" projections or strobili. Fan Clubmoss bears tiny, pointed, scale-like, dark green foliage. Once the spores are established, this plant is spread by its rhizome stems, which grow best under leaf litter. Very slow-growing, the stems appear as a pale yellow, cone-like protuberance called stromboli, where packages of spores are formed and released to the wind by late summer into fall. It can take several years for Fan Clubmoss spores to establish, so if you are transplanting from nursery pots, include the large clump of soil surrounding the plant and do not disturb its roots. Planting Fan Clubmoss is relatively easy since its rhizomes will root where planted. Just ensure that they receive the correct amount of light and water. Since this is a spreading moss, ensure that it is not planted where it might crowd out other plants.
As a turf builder for your backyard water or rain garden sanctuary, Fan Clubmoss is a perfect solution. This moss enjoys being grown in moist areas, so placing it around a pond or using it as ground cover to stop soil erosion is ideal.
Small birds enjoy nesting in Fan Clubmoss, turning your water or rain garden sanctuary into a birders paradise. A woodland garden area is a magnificent way to use Fan Clubmoss. Create a secret garden appeal with a mix of colorful wildflower perennials to add a beautiful enhancement.
