Fills the Bill! Review by Angie F | Zone: 4b
I needed something to fill in my sunny stone walkways and this really fills the bill! It withstands fairly heavy foot traffic and looks amazing. It behaves and looks exactly like a moss should. All who see it are amazed to see it growing in my full sun areas. Thanks Garden Crossings! (Posted on 6/13/2010)
