I keep getting weeds in between my pavers and they show Irish Moss as a suggestion in gardening websites to make an attractive low- growing ' fill in' but Isn't moss slippery , or is this species NOT?!
The Irish Moss that I know is a red edible seaweed, but it seems that some US websites are talking about this http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/groundcover/irish-moss/growing-irish-moss-plants.htm .
It's known in the UK as Pearlwort https://www.victoriananursery.co.uk/Heath_Pearlwort_Lawn/
and isn't a moss at all.
If you DO want a low growing plant for between your pavers then why not try a creeping thyme.
I'm with ladybird4 on thyme looks good and smells good when walked on.
Absolutely agree - I'd far rather have some assorted creeping thymes - golden leaves, silver leaves, green leaves, and pink or purple flowers - absolutely gorgeous - and not a nuisance if it spreads and gets into borders, which pearlwort can be.
pearlwort would add one more weed to the collection.
My thoughts exactly Nut
Thank you all. I don't know now. No thyme doesn't appeal. I'd like something tiny and real low growing.
The Irish Moss you mention (Sagina subulata) grows taller than some of the creeping thymes. I know you don't care for thymes but that is just to give you an idea of size.
Thanks! Annoying. Just every year the lil'ole weeds sprout out of every nook where soil has drifted . I used to have a work out with salt in the edgings but it's never ending!
Ha ha Breathe - thats gardening for you.
