Moss plants are a great addition to a struggling garden where it is hard for any other type of plant to establish itself.
From rocky to wet to shady gardens, moss is capable of filling in and thriving in hard to grow spots. Moss transplants can add color, interest, and a foundation to your garden, enhancing it in a way that is natural and lush.
If you want to add moss plants to your garden to enhance it, or simply get something growing in space, these are some planting guidelines to keep in mind.
Moss Plant Description
Moss plants are all green in color, but the varieties of moss come in all different shades of green making it possible to create an interesting color palette with just moss. Depending on the type of moss you plant in your garden, the texture, height, and shape of the moss will differ.
No matter what type of moss you plant though, expect it to be low growing and to spread like a carpet across the ground, stones, or tree roots.
Moss Hardy Zones
Moss plants are hardy for zones four to ten, with most being found in zones 3 to 9.
Bloom Season and Color
Most plants do not have flowering blooms, but they have a long-lasting growing season once they have been transplanted and established.
Moss Plant Height
Most plants are not tall-growing plants but instead spread across the ground creating a cover. Most varieties only grow to about an inch high, but there are a few varieties that will grow as much as four inches high.
Moss Soil Preferences
Most mosses are going to prefer an acidic, poor, wet, clay soil to grow in. But, some are capable of growing in soil that is slightly alkaline and that is well-draining but often wet.
Sun or Shade for Moss?
When establishing themselves moss needs sun and shade, but once it is growing it can tolerate a little more sun. The shade is preferred by the plant though.
