Sphagnum

(Spagnidae - sphagnum subclass family)
Sphagnum or peat or bog moss. Mosses of acidic, wet soils or boggy locations. About 50 species occur in North America, many others worldwide. Important to horticulture as the source of commercial sphagnum and sphagnum peat moss, the sponge-like plants also make interesting ornmentals where conditions are suitable.

sphagnum moss

moss, located by Fargesia plantings


moss, native, moist - wet, sun - part shade
eastern North America?

This is a native species (which we have not yet identified) which flourishes here on the sunny shore of a pond. Given a steady moisture supply and acidic conditions, sphagnum mosses are said to be quite adaptable. In full sun, sphagnum mosses often develop a range of interesting colors; they are less inclined to do this in shade. It is said that sphagnum mosses can even make good rock garden plants. In their normal condition, sphagnum mosses will be saturated with water like a sponge filled to capacity. They have a remarkable ability to remain saturated, or at least wetter than seems reasonable, even when their environment dries out; they can stand considerable summer dryness, especially if they have some shade.
