Plant of the day: Awned haircap moss


Haircap moss with small Polypody ferns

Awned haircap moss (Polytrichum piliferum) grows in spiky-looking cushions in dry areas such as sandy slopes, gravel, or on exposed rock faces. Look for small leaves tipped with a long clear point in order to tell it from other species of Polytrichum.
