Running Cedar


Running Cedar Adds Striking Green Color and Intriguing Texture to Any Shaded Outdoor Space

Diphasiastrum Digitatum is a unique and eye-catching plant that is popular among gardeners and landscape designers. With its delicate stems and bright green leaves, this plant adds a touch of texture and color to any outdoor space. This mossy plant is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 4 to 9.

Running Cedar, also called Fan Clubmoss, Ground Cedar, or Crow’s-foot, prefers partial to full shade and thrives in moist, well-drained soil. It is particularly well-suited for areas where other plants may struggle, such as in damp or shady spots in your yard. This plant is a low-growing ground cover, only reaching about four to six inches in height, making it an ideal choice for areas where you want to create a lush, green carpet-like appearance.

When it comes to caring for running cedar, it is relatively low-maintenance and easy to grow. It spreads steadily, becoming a dense ground cover over time. If you want to encourage faster growth, you can apply our worm castings to the area.

Running Cedar Is a Gorgeous Ground Cover, Ideal for the Shadiest Spots in Your Yard

The stems of the running cedar are slender and have a graceful, arching shape. They reach up to about twelve inches in length and are covered in tiny, bright green leaves that are roughly one or two inches long. The leaves are needle-like in shape and are arranged in a feathery pattern along the stem.

Aside from its incredibly good looks, running cedar also has environmental benefits. As a native plant, it provides a habitat for local fauna, including birds and insects, and helps to conserve biodiversity. Additionally, it helps to prevent soil erosion, as its roots will help to stabilize the soil and prevent runoff.
