Climacium Mat

Product Description

Climacium americanum is commonly called Tree Moss. It gets its name from the fact that it grows in colonies that appear like forests of little trees. Actually, upper canopy of tree moss is much larger than most all other mosses, about .75-1.5” in spread and a height of 1-3”. New growth will be deep green while older growth or colonies in too much sun will be a yellow-green-brownish color. Mature colonies form interwoven mounds that may grow 4-5” tall. Ideal to use for water filtration and storm water run-off. Climacium grows in deep shade as well as partial sun exposures.

Our beautiful moss mats roll out like a lush green carpet. Measuring 6 ft x 6 ft, totaling 36 square feet. The moss will be attached to a black landscaping fabric which serves as a weed barrier and provides additional moisture retention. Mats can be cut with scissors into creative shapes or geometric designs. To plant, mosses can be left on black fabric and rolled out as is, or moss colonies can be pulled off. Once removed, mosses can be planted as full colonies for complete coverage and instant gratification or cut up into fragments and scattered to fill in over time. Using the fragmentation planting method, you can cover more square footage but it will take several months to several years to achieve the solid green appeal. Note: The thicker the covering of moss fragments on the ground, the faster the growth. Water and walk on your newly planted mosses for best results.

The price of a mat is separate from shipping charge. Shipping costs range from $75-$200. Price varies on distance it needs to ship and final calculated weight.
