Despite the name, club moss isn't a true moss but is a spore-producing plant in the fern family. Because this erect, low-growing plant resembles a miniature pine bough, it is also known as Running Pine, Princess Pine and many other names.

The spores, which contain high levels of aluminum, were once used to make flash powder for theatrical use and in early photography. Today, the leaves and stems are made into tea. They are also used to manufacture a powder used in the pharmaceutical industry to absorb moisture and prevent pills from adhering to each other.
