Gardeners living in Southern Maryland.......what is this plant?

Saw this plant at the Ann Marie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center, Solomons, MD. It appears to be a natural ground cover of some type and has similarities to foliage found on certain types of cedar trees.

    I know the plant, I am from MD ,we used it to make wreathes at Christmas, it is a runner, & it keeps the green I am sorry but I don't remember the name , but it is a healthy plant & would need to be kept in tight as it could also be a take over plant if not watch ,You could most likely get a start out of the woods , just be sure to get root with it , it grows wild

    This is referred to as Running Cedar or Southern Ground Pine (Diphasiastrum digitatum). It is here in Central Virginia as well.

      Clearly hiking is in my future to collect some for transplant in my wooded area. Thank you for identifying it.

    Yes, I have seen it in the woods in southern Wisconsin. Looks like it would be lovely in a fairy garden.

    I like the look of this-never saw it before in Jersey, but I'm moving to Georgia and would love to have this growing against or near my home. I'll look for it there.
