More Than Just Turf


Pearlwort  (Sagina procumbens) is more accurately called procumbent pearlwort. It is a diminutive bright green coloured plant that has small needle shapes leaves set on opposite sides of a tiny stem. The plant looks similar to and is sometimes mistaken for Irish Moss. It forms a tight, dense mat even in closely mown swards.


  • Pearlwort can be selectively controlled using herbicides containing Triclopyr & Picloram (Victory Gold, Triumph,Tordon Brushkiller) at recommended label rates.
