It is Scleranthus biflorus (Sunshine Moss is it's common name) and it is a New Zealand native. Ophiopogon nana (mondo grass) could also work in a semi shaded position, although the green will be a bit darker.

Hi, thanks for your enquiry. The rocks were sourced through a local Tauranga landscape supply company. Most towns and cities will have a landscape supply company that should be able to source other products for you, otherwise try your nearest quarry.

Outdoors? Climate? Could it be done in indoor courtyard? With moss?

Although I don't know the conditions, I imagine that this idea would work - but you will still require reasonable light levels. Alternatively, instead of moss you could incorporate the Japanese sand garden style with rocks and water and a perhaps couple of plants

Hi, thanks for your question. The mossy plant is Scleranthus biflorus a New Zealand native, I'm not sure which other countries it is available in. It can handle full sun just fine, but doesn't like wet feet. I hope that helps.

You could perhaps try a sand-blasted glass as a substitute and with regards to the plants perhaps Baby Tears as recently featured on Houzz could be an option for you. http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/14650960/list?utm_source=Houzz&utm_campaign=u356&utm_medium=email&utm_content=gallery25

Hi, thanks for your question. The plant is Scleranthus biflorus, a New Zealand native. It's really happy in full sun, and requires good drainage.

Unlikely, it is frost hardy - but you're talking seriously cold!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz added this to Zen Garden
Zen gardens are designed to create a stripped-down awareness of thought.
Matt Kilburn added this to 6 Great Ways With Garden Ground Covers
In rock gardens. Rock gardens are unique growing environments, and not all plants will appreciate the arid conditions. In addition to alpine plants, there are some ground covers that flourish in these conditions and can create interesting, low-maintenance and miniature gardens. Knawel cushion (Scleranthus biflorus, zones 9 to 11) is a truly fascinating specimen that will likely become a feature in your rock garden. This slow growing, mound-forming plant provides a dense carpet of green foliage that will slowly creep over the surrounding rocks. Make sure that the soil is well drained, as knawel cushion is prone to rotting with too much water.
