Learn more about the fan clubmoss
Fan clubmoss, also known as ground cedar or crowsfoot, is a plant that lives on the forest floor. It is an evergreen, which means it stays green all year round, even in the winter. They tend to be found in wooded areas where oak trees and conifers are also found. They were once threatened by their popularity as Christmas greenery, but have recovered.
