About

Unique novelty plant with slender stems completely wrapped with small, pointed leaves, well-described by its many common names including princess pine, watch chain, rattail and clubmoss. New growth is upright, eventually cascading as stems grow heavy. An excellent small-scale ground cover or foliage accent in well-drained sites. Makes a good houseplant in a bright window.
