Milled Sphagnum, as far as I know, is finely chopped sphagnum.

Now that I think of it, I'm sure that my U. peltata *did* flower - but it
hasn't done so for a year or more. I think I'm confusing it with an
unlabelled Utrics I've got (I think it's U. tricolor) which seems to
attempt flowering but the flowers don't develop... :-(
