feather moss


moss, rock garden, native, moist - wet, sun - part shade
North America

Feather moss is distinguished by its lacy, fern-like fronds. Plants are green to yellow-green in color, with a mat-forming growth habit. Usually occurs on moist, shaded soil, humus, rocks, logs, or stumps on moist to wet, rich, sloping sites. Prefers very humid conditions and shade. Considered difficult to transplant, but sufficiently appealing and distinctive to be worth a try if it can be given suitable conditions. Used by horticulturists for orchid cultivation and said to be used in the Himalayan highlands for chinking in buildings Four toed salamander nest in feather moss.
