Quick Overview

Hypnum Cuppresiforme is often referred to as sheet moss for it's lateral, interwoven growth habit. It produces a uniform  surface that resembles a berber rug in texture. With a medium growth habit and  the ability to cover wood, soil and sometimes stone, this moss is a great carpeting species with the ability to adapt to a wide range of conditions. Establishment in southern climates can be difficult but proper watering techniques can make it possible.

  • Full shade to part shade

  • Needs regular moisture for establishment - drought tolerant afterwards.

  • Strong woven branching makes for a durable walkable moss lawn.

Important: Guarantee and return policy regarding bulk moss sales.
