Increasing from ground level, it reaches a height of about one inch. Moss colonies can encompass hundreds of feet regarding width. Mature tree apron moss also has a pleasant scent.

This is a moss that likes acidic environments and does best in soils with a high phosphorous content. The moss is often used to remove toxins from soil and "clean it" for other plants. Able to absorb almost ten times its weight in liquids, tree apron moss has been introduced to flood-prone areas to reduce water damage. When soil and growing conditions are right (moist and well drained), it quickly becomes established in an area. It is an evergreen plant and does not require replanting or extensive maintenance by owners. When exposed to intense light, the moss will turn yellowish brown and appear to "die." However, when reintroduced to more favorable growing conditions, tree apron moss reverts to its standard dark green color.
