Description

Tree Apron Moss comes in an array of varieties

The most common image that comes to peoples' minds is of long strands of Spanish moss hanging from the boughs of a full oak tree. You can also have that look of the deep south in your home and yard decorations.

Tree Apron Moss is a very ornamental moss that grows on trees

Spanish moss is the most common hanging tree moss used for ornamentation and horticulture. It is widespread naturally throughout the southern parts of the United States. It is an epiphyte moss, which means it grows in the branches of a variety of trees. Usually, it does not harm the tree at all. However, if it gets thick enough, it can shade the leaves of the tree and affect its overall growth pattern. The primary uses in landscaping are as a decoration for large trees. It can also be used as bedding for flower gardens. It has recently found application in green roofing as well.

Tree Apron Moss has alot of different uses such as home decor and packaging

Tree moss also has some uses when dried, including arts & crafts, home decor, animal bedding, and even dry packaging material. It has yet been used for building insulation in the past.You can transfer live moss from one tree to another to get it to spread. You can bring it in during the winter and replace it with the tree each spring. It will not survive entirely, but new growth will occur as the season warms.Like all mosses, keeping tree moss wet, especially during dry periods, is essential to its growth and appearance. In nature, it prefers live oak trees as its growing strata, but almost any large oak or another deciduous tree can work. The moss itself is usually made up of long, gray-green strands that intertwine as it grows. Those curled strands are what give it its wispy, "beard-like" appearance. That classy look is what draws so many to use it as an ornamental.
