Ground covers are a great way to fill those large areas of garden where you don't want anything that's going to grow too high.
This moss-like plant would look great in both the ground and potted as the lumpy formation gives added texture to any space.
Moss-like plant which forms a dense mound up to 1m across. Does well in gravel but happy in soil as long as drainage is good. Prefers full sun. Need protection from prolonged periods of frost. The foliage is a little larger and looser than Scleranthus uniflorus. More prone to losing their tight form if light levels are too low. Susceptible to fungal attack if conditions are too wet. Will die back if too dry. Free-draining planting medium is essential. If it browns off in the middle pull out the brown pieces and remove a healthy piece from the outside and replant in the middle.
Below are images of scleranthus biflorus in many different landscape situations.
