Flowering Time: This plant has no flower; it is a non-flowering moss that works mostly as a ground cover.
Soil Requirements: Can grow in most terrains, including pavement, roofs, sidewalks and even walls as well as in dirt, bark chips, or forest floors. Hedwigia moss makes a great green roof.
Pruning: Grows outward not upward. If moss begins to look scraggly trimming can be done to get the desired look. However, regular pruning is unnecessary.
Flower Form: No flower, a plush green moss with long “arm” looking limbs that stretch outward and give a wool carpet look. Limbs could also make it look coral-like.
