Peacock spikemoss

I have found a new, well new to me, shade plant which I love! It is Peacock Spikemoss (Selaginella uncinata) and like its name implies it has the most intense, almost metallic, blue & green colors. It is a great ground cover with a maximum 2' spread and 6' height and is hardy in US zones 6-10. They are said to be easy to grow and like a most, rich soil in the shade. I have put in two in the deepest part of my shade garden and they are doing beautifully. How they overwinter will be tested later this year.
