I has been very windy the last couple of days, and now there are plenty of leaves in my ‘maintained’ moss garden. I will remove them as soon as possible. Weeding and removing any debris on top of the moss is a key aspect of having a good moss area. The rest of the yard does not get this treatment, leaves stay wherever they are.

Bristly haircap moss, Polytrichum piliferum. Tiny but beautiful… the antheridia look almost like miniscule peonies.

Polytrichum piliferum is another beaty, it’s great to meet plants this way that are easily overlooked.
Akke & Spot
Mostly bulbs. Gardening in containers and enjoying public green.
Northern part of The Netherlands, a bit above sealevel, zone 8a normally, average precipitation 875 mm.
Lots to discover.

Akke,

That species is cosmopolitan, so it can be enjoyed in every country. Another one is Polytrichum juniperinum, very similar but less vibrant colors. It is slightly behind piliferum in terms of development in our yard. I’ll post a picture later when they are in ‘bloom’.

Thanks, I’ll keep an eye on this subject and suitable moss places around here. 😀
