Polytrichum Moss Hair Cap Moss
Haircap Moss, often called Polytrichum moss doesn't just grow abundantly from coast to coast of the United States; if one knows where to look, the hardy evergreen plant can be found on every continent on the planet, except for Antarctica. This is partly due to its ability to tolerate practically any climate and soil type, including those typically deemed 'poor' for the substantiation of plant life. The vast array of locations that polytrichum moss is native to is astounding. However, it is also frequently found in gardens the world over.
Home gardeners and professional landscapers tend to appreciate the presence of almost any kind of moss in a yard. This is not only because it requires only adequate moisture and to be kept clear of debris to thrive. Instead, in general, moss can transform a regular plot of commonplace plants into an oasis of sorts with a lush, fresh appearance. The presence of moss is associated with old things and thus lends an air of age, mystery, and wisdom to even the most newly established gardens.
Hair Cap Moss is an evergreen low lying groundcover
Haircap moss is particularly pleasant to look at, though, due to its one-of-a-kind structure. The perennial plant has a striking star-like appearance when viewed from above, thanks to pointed leaves that pop out at right angles all around its stiff stem. While it rarely exceeds twenty centimeters in height, polytrichum moss also grows taller than other species of moss. This feature is a simple way to add a compelling sense of dimension and texture to even the most complex gardens.
Many individuals mistakenly believe moss to be a boring plant because it doesn't produce flowers or fruits. However, the complex structures that polytrichum moss reproduces are pretty striking. They have a beautiful reddish tint, and their shape also mimics a flower! With so many intricate details- and so few requirements for growth- polytrichum moss is an excellent addition to every garden.
