Carpet Moss (Hypnum curvifolium)is the best-selling moss for a reason; It's Carpet-like Beauty

Carpet Moss: Hypnum curvifolium, or carpet moss, holds a spot as one of the top-selling plants at TN Nursery. It enjoys wide popularity with our customers with excellent reason. 


Carpet moss is an evergreen plant that grows in various climates and seasons and thrives in all USDA zones and seasons. It is a member of the Hypnum genus, which has approximately eighty species worldwide. Of these, about twenty species are native to North America. 


On a hike, you might see carpet moss growing naturally in stream beds and forests all year long.


How You Can Use Garden Moss


Gardeners use carpet moss to beautify landscapes. Its decorative properties make it incredibly useful as a ground cover or shade garden. It is a shade-loving moss that will increase even when nothing else grows due to low sunlight.  


This ground cover moss will quickly fill those bare spots that don't receive sufficient sunshine or hold too much moisture. Hypnum curvifolium allows you to bring those areas back to life.


People who love arts and crafts cultivate it to later dry and use in wreath-making. It has a plush, full texture that adds visual interest to floral arrangements. Others bring it indoors and lay it in houseplant pots to help lock in the moisture, so they require less frequent watering. Still, others use it to craft terrariums.


Sheet moss is not only beautiful but also disease resistant, making it an excellent choice for gardeners.


Carpert Moss Hypnum curvifolium has a Rich, Emerald Green Appearance 


You will not feel disappointed by the striking beauty of carpet moss. It forms a thick mat that feels good under the foot, almost like a cushion. Unlike some mossy plants, carpet moss is resilient after foot traffic; if it sustains damage, it quickly fills in again. 


The color of healthy carpet moss is unapologetically bold, emerald green. It covers the ground beautifully and quickly, bringing life to areas that were previously empty spots in the backyard.

    Carpet Moss

    Posted by Dan C on Apr 06, 2022

    Received carpet moss and installed around pond. Most was in nice pieces but some looked like it was falling apart in the box, so I used as a shake spreading overtop of soil. 5 square feet might be a stretch on the amount you actually receive. I just ordered 10 more square feet, will see how it does long term in zone 6 with sun and shade coverage.
