Ground Cedar – Buying

Q: Where can I buy ground cedar?

A: Ground cedar is an attractive evergreen forest groundcover that spreads by underground runners. The correct scientific name is Diphasiastrum digitatum but I preferred its older Latin name: Lycopodium digitatum, which means “wolf’s foot”. It’s a conversation piece when seen on a hike.

Sad to say, it is very hard to transplant. The roots seem to require specific soil fungi, so you can’t just dig up a clump and transplant it.
