Fern Moss $9.99 Description

Fern Moss (Thuidium delicatulum) is a Ground Covering Plant with a Fern-like Appearance

Fern Moss: Thuidium Delicatulum is a ground-covering plant with a fern-like appearance. It likes partial sunlight and shade and does well in sun-challenged areas. Once established, This Moss is drought-hardy and requires little maintenance.

It is a beautiful groundcover for your rock garden or beds around your home. Its fern-like appearance has an almost medieval magical quality that sparks the imagination. It's an excellent solution for those flat or gently sloping areas in your yard that are a bit bald due to shade. Fern Moss does tolerate being walked on, so it can do well around stepping stones or in shade gardens with steps.

Fern Moss (Thuidium delicatulum) will Act as Living Mulch for your Water Happy Ferns

This moss likes to start on the ground that is not cluttered with other plants. It needs water to start, but it is established after six months and is basically maintenance-free. As a plus, this moss spreads quickly and is hardy.

It can enhance a water feature or a concrete wall. This plant and its fern-like texture showcase Stone, brick, or wood steps. A fern garden groundcover will act as a living mulch for the water-happy ferns.

Moss fern adds strong curb appeal to your home. Yards and gardens using this moss as a ground cover show well, and the need for minor maintenance is also a plus. It can increase in most of the eastern side of the US as it is like woodland-type areas with high humidity.

Acid soil is not a problem, and it can thrive around junipers and pines. An added plus, it is used by many songbirds as nesting material. If you are in the market for a beautiful shaded ground cover, consider the hardy thulium moss.

This plant features soft, velvety frond-like leaves that resemble tiny ferns. A pleurocarpous perennial plant native to vast areas of North America, this moss spreads across the soil, dead wood, bricks, and stones in a dense carpet of yellowish to green leaves. 

Also known as fern moss or common fern moss, it is a hardy, low-maintenance ground cover requiring little watering after it reaches maturity. Preferring partial sun or full shade, This Moss functions naturally as live mulch, growing up to 12 inches a year. 

The stem of each fern-like leaf reaches up to 8.5 centimeters (or 3.5 inches)long, while the largest of the offshoot leaves measure up to .5 millimeters. The larger leaves, each of which functions as a stem for smaller leaves, are broadly oval to triangular in shape and roll downwards. The smaller of the leaves, shooting off from the larger leaves, feature tiny, hair-like cilia. 

Secondary cylindrical stalks, light green to muted red, will occasionally grow from the moss's leaves. These stalks bear spore capsules that are between 2 and 4 millimeters long. The spore capsule changes color from light green to red as it matures. Thudium Moss reproduces when the lid of the capsule drops, and the spores are released into the wind.

    Like everything I’ve ordered from you before, the moss arrived quickly and in good condition. I have had it in place for only two days and it is greening up beautifully. Can’t wait to see it full grown!

    Past customer. First order of Thudium Moss. As with previous moss orders from TN, shipped within stated time, well-packed, arrived healthy and green. Nice variation to combine with previous Hypnum and Ground Fern Moss. Great experience all around. Thanks, TN!

    The sheets arrived showing nothing damaging from shipping, being bright green and ready for planting. Now planted, their vivid green shows that the sheets are settling into their new surroundings.
