Description

Haircap Moss is a straightforward Moss to Grow In Shade and Moisture Areas

 

These mosses, native to Canada’s arboreal forests, are acrocarps. That means that, unlike the soft green carpet that springs to mind at the word “moss,” Hair Cap Mosses have an upright growth habit with leaves and stems. In appearance, they resemble short, soft stems of bright evergreen boughs sticking up vertically from the soil. It reaches more than six inches in height, producing bright green leaves and stems.

Haircap Moss is also a fast spreader groundcover with year-round greenery

These form a lush carpet of greenery that spreads very slowly to fill the available space. Juniper Hair Caps, by comparison, are smaller, typically only growing to be five inches tall and often forming clusters rather than carpets. These have the blue-green color and shape of juniper boughs. Both varieties prefer neutral to acidic soil and partial to deep shade. Though mosses will do well on various soils, very sandy soils can pose a problem as they may erode from beneath new plantings and prevent successful anchoring. Mosses do not have extensive root systems, so contact with the soil is crucial in establishing new plantings.

Unlike stream-bank mosses, This does not require constant water; in fact, over-watering can cause browning and even death. Instead, water lightly each day for the first two months after planting until it is established. Then switch to watering lightly once a week for two months, once a month after that until it has reached the desired size. For established mosses, no watering is necessary except during drought periods that last three weeks or more.
