Mountain Moss is dedicated to bridging the information gap and presenting it in terms that the average gardener or landscaper can understand. Learning about bryophytes and their horticultural applications can be a challenge. First, there is no comprehensive visual field guide with color photographs. Second, there are very few references that provide specific guidelines for moss gardening. In terms of new approaches to greening our urban environments, mosses are just being introduced or considered for green roofs, moss lawns, or living walls. There is little documentation or research to guide these emerging options for mosses in sustainable landscape applications.
Although the grand moss temples in Kyoto have attracted visitors for over 5000 years, the value of mosses is just gaining recognition in America as a viable horticultural choice. With over a decade of practical experience and years of research to attain expertise, Mountain Moss actively networks with bryologists and moss gardeners from around the world.
Mossin’ Annie approaches this information dilemma with a “good spirit” determination to share, and hence, grow the moss industry for all. Enjoy learning more about moss from a botanical perspective to better understand their implications for a better environment.
