Haircap Moss $9.99 Per Sq Ft. Description

Hair Cap Polytrichium Moss 

Polytrichium Moss, commonly known as the haircap moss, is a perennial that grows from coast to coast in the United States. "Haircap" comes from the tiny hairs that cover (or cap) the spore-bearing portion of the plant to protect it. The moss is prolific enough that if you look hard enough, the plant can be found on nearly every continent. Due to its tolerant climate and soil types, even those considered "poor" support continual plant life like slow drainage. It can be commonly found growing in the wild on old stone, dead trees, and even on the banks of lakes or ponds. 

 

Haircap Moss is versitle

 The Polytrichium moss starts as a slow grower, like most perennial moss. Once its root system has been established controls erosion and strengthens weak soil areas prone to flooding. This usually encourages other plants to grow along with it. Polytrichium moss flourishes in moist soils that are slightly acidic or alkaline. While preferring partial shade, it can also grow in full sunlight if the moisture in the soil is maintained. They require little maintenance from how hardy they are.

 

 Of all the mosses, Polytrichium moss is one of the taller ones, where it reaches upwards of two to eight inches tall. When viewed from above, the moss has a star-like appearance due to the leaves popping out at all angles from the stem. Generally, it grows as a rich, dark green color.

 

 Polytrichium moss hair cap moss is a great way to add depth to any garden and can even be transplanted
