Rock Cap Moss Rock Garden Plants
Rock Cap Moss (Dicranum) moss acres Rock Cap moss is typically found growing atop rocks and boulders in the wild. This dense, medium to dark-green moss transplants extremely well into shady areas and onto rocks or soil. For even more information about rock garden plants please view the information below. Important: Rock Cap mosses grow in more deeply shaded areas, and are prone to "sun burning" (turning a brownish yellow) following transplanting if they are relocated to an area that receives direct sunlight for periods of more than just a few minutes. They are particularly vulnerable during early spring and late fall before tree leaves have flushed or after they have fallen. Grow this moss in deeper shade and transplant when leaves are on the trees.
