Transplants of Irish Moss (Sagina subulata) (Sagina procumbens aurea)

the autumn is progressing and the IM is still spreading! Both types visible here...the darker moss likes more light the lime green will tolerate dappled shade. I'm working on establishing a mossy pathway here; other mosses are growing but very slowly...I think my soil's pH is a little high for them, but I give them a yogurt drink occasionally...there is also a small advantageous melissa..trying to grow there too. Once you plant melissa you have it forever!! hope the moss does that too!

I do as well. Melissa doesn't return here, but I put it in again and again anyway.

I'm so glad the moss is spreading so quickly. I just love a mossy walk.
