Moss for Sunny Areas

For years we have had requests from people with sunnier locations for sun loving mosses. We have been experimenting with them lately by shredding them and inoculating the fragments onto green roof soil media and onto mats with very favorable results. The challenges are these mosses are hard to obtain in quantity and we are just starting with propagation. We are however, for the first time making available mixed sun loving mosses in small quantities as inoculants for sunny green roof areas, walkways, and/or for broadcasting onto our moss mats See below for product details.

This is a sun loving moss that can grow in full or partial sunlight. When wet or damp, this moss becomes a brilliant emerald green. Once established it can easily survive being completely dried out. Prefers an alkaline soil or limestone type substrate. Great adjacent to concrete or stone. This moss can tolerate direct sunlight. Bryum is a clumping moss ( acrocarp) that will grow to one inch or less in height.
