Fan Clubmoss Running Cedar is a plant found throughout the eastern third of the U.S. from the Great Lakes to the Carolinas.
The Running Cedar is part of the family of clubmosses, known as Lycopdodiaceae, which are found in forest and woodland areas where they enjoy the shade provided by the canopy of the trees.
Running Cedar does not grow to any substantial height with it spreading across the floor of the woodland area with its root system, known as runners that connect the plant to the soil and other branches.
The plant has a similarity to the bough of the cedar tree, which gives Running Cedar its common name due to its easy to identify appearance. When grown in the wild, the runners of the Running Cedar are not often seen because of the large number of leaves and other debris that litter the woodland floor.
Running Cedar is a difficult plant to transplant because it grows extremely slowly and needs moist soil to help it continue to grow. Because of the location the Running Cedar generally grows in means it requires as little sun as possible to grow effectively. A part shade planting area will help the Running Cedar to grow effectively with the complete shade is the best option for optimum growth. Each Summer, a large site emerges from the Running Cedar growing directly upward that carries the seeds of the plant that are usually carried around by passing animals. Outside the Summer, the Running Cedar maintains the low-lying appearance that gives it the appearance of a conifer or fern.
