Hi - I was in a wooded area with acres of ferns where I encountered a small ground plant I can't identify altho I think it occurs commonly. It looks like a fluffy evergreen wreath 2-4" in diameter. Soft to the touch.
I decided to take a few for re-planting at home and then discovered that they are connected underground by a runner, vine, root? I hestitated, worrying about something that might take over my yard.
I had gathered some ferns for my pond area, and when I sorted them out there were a few of these plants (pretty, my wife says) and so they are planted.
Can anyone tell me what I have and if they are a potential nuisance? I'd like more as they are a nice groundcover.
Thanks much - Mike
