I see this on my hikes/runs in the N GA mountains. I would like to plant something like this in my wooded backyard. It appears to spread through runners. Any idea what it is and if it would grow in Tucker?

    “Ground pine” (and other similar common names); a type of club moss.

    No idea as to its viability in Tucker, but no harm in trying to transplant some of it. I would take care to make sure it doesn’t lack for moisture.
