Commonly known as topiary moss, sphagnum or peat moss is a genus of moss that encompasses nearly 380 different species. These moss plants feature branch fascicles clustered tightly together on the main stem. Individual plants comprise of several spreading branches and several hanging branches, with younger branches located at the top of the plant. The stem leaves of these plants, which vary in shape depending on the specific species, are comprised of two types of cells. Chlorophyllous cells are small, green, living cells that interspersed with large, clear, dead hyaline cells. The ability of these hyaline cells to retain water allows sphagnum moss to spread more readily to drier areas within a set framework and makes this plant ideal for the creation of topiaries.
