PEACOCK Rainbow Spikemoss Fern Plant Selaginella Unusual Iridescent Foliage Houseplant or Outdoor Starter Size 4 Inch Pot Emerald TM


Selaginella uncinata (also known as Peacock Fern or Rainbow Moss) is one of a wonderfully interesting plant family that have a delicate and tropical fern-like appearance, but are actually very tough, easy to grow, moderately cold hardy and not a fern at all. They share many characteristic with ferns beyond their cosmetic appearance.

The growth habit is slow, low growing and spreading, and so, are a good choice for most any shaded spot that needs ground cover. It is also lovely as a potted plant or hanging basket, and is great choice for dish gardens and terrariums, but unlike many ferns, Selaginellas are moderately cold tolerant, and can be successfully grown outdoors in Zones 6 to 10A.

The common name, Peacock Fern or Rainbow Moss, comes from the varying, shimmery, iridescent, blue green and bronze red coloring of the lacy, fern-like foliage, which will vary based on season, light levels, and nutritional levels.

Selaginellas go fully dormant in the winter in all climates.
