Description from Moss and Stone Gardens
Dicranum scoparium is usually labeled as mood moss for it's distinctive appearance that changes with moisture. Dry, it appears wispy and irregular, moist it appears fluffy with a verdantly directional texture suggestive of a mood. Strictly for dry shade applications, mood moss will take to soil, stone or wood substrates equally. Establishment will take longer (6 months or more) than our another mosses but watering requirements are lessened and their mounding fluffy appearance is truly magical. Not suited for regular foot traffic.
- Full shade to part shade
- Needs minimal moisture for establishment – extremely drought tolerant once established
