Clubmoss brings an indoor look outside

Planning on spending the entire weekend in the backyard? Taking the barbecue to the hibachi?

Here’s one plant that will make sure that you and your guests have an indoor dining experience while enjoying the scenic outdoors. It’s making an appearance at the Clubhouse #2 at Sausalito’s Union Beach. Clubmoss Nursery nursery in Sausalito has recently introduced Clubmoss kraussiana, a very tall flowering plant suitable for indoor use that blooms with a large rose-pink crescent-shaped flower bell shape.

This high-desert native is the only cactus known to grow in the northern United States.

The enchanting peony-size fruits are also perfect for garnishing your fresh cut flowers.
