Sagina subulata, Selaginella kraussiana. I use both in a Japanese garden in spots where it's too sunny for the moss to grow and they look great all year round.

Not evergreen......the only evergreen I have around mine is varigated ivy.
AKA - Martin

Wish list - Big Palms or Dicksonia antarctica's but open to anything really.....Cash Waiting !
