Dawsonia superba, Giant Moss

Dawsonia superba ,Giant Moss
This giant moss which is native to the east coast of Australia resembles a ground cover of minature pine trees. It changes colour from bright green to blue depending on how much water it receives.
Given shade and a spot in moist leaf mulch or around rocks it is easy to grow.
2017 update: Disappeared from my garden long ago though possibly available from specialist native nurseries

  1. I'd like to track down a source of this plant? Although that nursery's website is down, I was able to view it on archive.org

    Are you aware if they're still open or if other nurserys might have it or, particularly, its spores?

    Thank you
