Moss Sphagnum: A Natural Bog Plant

Monday, April 11

Did you know that in the 1800s, people collected moss?

It's true. There are 12,000 kinds, so apparently, they had quite a few to choose from.

Back then, prized moss specimens were kept in "mosses" in the U.S. and Great Britain. Next time you see it covering a statue or stepping stones in your garden, think about those fantastic moss collectors of yesteryear. Walking Ferns love to grow in mossy areas. Find them in our plant nursery.

Sheet Moss

Sheet Moss is a lush, low-growing species that forms a dense carpet of soft, emerald-green foliage. It is often used in terrariums, floral arrangements, and as a ground cover in shaded areas. It is one of the most favored types for lawns. It’s so named because it creates a ‘sheet’ over a garden or forest floor.   Beyond the luxurious and welcoming appearance and vibe of this dense sheet, it also serves as the protecting home for a variety of microfauna, including frogs, spiders, and insects. Many small ecosystems revolve around the layers of it on the forest floor, and gardeners who are seeking to add more biodiversity to their gardens should consider adding it to the ground of their gardens. Where Does Sheet Moss Grow Officially known as Hypnum curvifolium, it is a wide-ranging plant that is found on every continent except for Antarctica. It’s mostly found in temperature regions of the world and adapts well to moist areas. You’ll commonly see it underneath logs or rocks, around tree trunks, or near natural sources of water. In gardens, you’ll usually find it around clay pots, stones, or next to artificial ponds. Description of This Moss It is most notable for its soft fronds that collectively form a thick carpet of green over a forest floor. The individual leaves are very small and overlap a bit over one another, which helps to create the plant’s soft and lavish texture and appearance. Laying down over it will be akin to laying down over nature’s version of a mattress. While the leaves are normally a bright green, they will also develop a slight but noticeable yellow tint when moisture levels deplete a bit or are under prolonged exposure to sunlight. Why is It A Good Choice For Gardeners Gardeners like it because of how adaptable it is. It can easily retain moisture to help hydrate the soil underneath it and prevent erosion. People will often add it to gardens as well as terrariums to help create an atmosphere that is equally as lush as it is inviting. It is also very low maintenance and requires minimal pruning and watering. Many gardeners who want to create a green covering over the ground will turn to it over grass for this reason. It’s a suitable choice both for experienced gardeners and those who are new to the hobby.  Grass is the traditional go-to for groundcover, but one shouldn't put Sheet Moss out of their mind. Certain varieties, like this type, form a lush sheet of green over the surface it inhabits. But much like any other plant, the reasons to grow this type of ground cover go far beyond just what it has to offer aesthetically. Here's how this plant can benefit and enhance your landscape with ease. It Defends Your Soil Against Erosion and Flooding Are you looking for ground cover that grows better in your region and offers benefits for the surrounding environment? If so, this plant is an excellent choice. While it doesn't have a root system, it's still an excellent plant that can defend against soil erosion and serve to better control the flow of water, leading to less flooding if you live in an area that experiences a lot of rain or a few unpredictable showers here and there during the winter and spring seasons. It Is a Benefit for Other Plants in Your Garden That Loves Moisture This type of plant loves moisture, which is why it's often recommended for regions where grass can't easily thrive. However, you can go a step beyond that and grow plants that also love moisture on top of this plant as it serves to retain moisture that your other plants will rely on to grow strong. You can even add it to potted plants for this purpose as well as to improve the aesthetics of items like bonsai trees. It Tolerates a Range of Condition As we just touched upon, this plant loves moisture, but that doesn't mean that it can't hold up against conditions that might threaten the lives of other varieties. In comparison, this variety is actually hardier, making it easier to keep alive once you spread it across your landscape. If you're looking for ground cover that enhances your space and will hold up over time, this is the one to choose. It Is TN Nursery's Best Seller Because of The Year-Round Greenery  You want your yard to look as lush and vibrant as possible throughout the year, and this form of groundcover can help you achieve exactly that. With proper care and maintenance, you'll enjoy what this plant has to offer your space.
