Southern Ground Cedar – for more photos / information go to the Lycopodium digitatum detail page.

It’s a bit of a stretch to call this a wildflower – it is actually classified as a Fern-ally – nearly a fern, but not.

    I did not realize this was a moss. My woods are full of it and it is beautiful. I’m going to make Christmas wreaths out of it this year. When this moss drys it turns a light gold which is also pretty.
