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.

    Blanket Moss

    Posted by Steven Mukai on Nov 17, 2020

    I submitted an earlier review where I noted that the carpet moss was beautiful, but I had only received about half the coverage of what I ordered. Also the box was open and the moss was bare in the box. About a week after submitting the review, I received another box in the mail, this time securely taped, and with moss in a plastic garbage bag. Thanks so much for reading the review and addressing my concern. The moss is indeed beautiful, and now I feel good about the purchase. Thanks again for the customer service!

    Maybe order in cooler months

    Posted by Carol A. on Sep 02, 2020

    Perhaps it was not the best idea to order during the summer months. The moss arrived a little brown and desiccated but I suspect it will green up with a bit of care. It also came complete with wildlife (a snail and a slug) at no extra cost which I did not mind at all. I was surprised to find that the moss was in rather small pieces.

    It arrived in good condition. We put it down two days ago, so I don't know how well it will do as of yet.
