White Cushion Moss is a common moss which forms a thick cushion. It can be white, grayish, or bluish-green. It grows about one to three inches tall. This moss often grows in a ball shape, but it can also form a mat almost three feet across.
White Cushion Moss grows in moist woods or marshes; anywhere there is shade and water. It can be found growing on soil, rotting logs, bases of living or dead tree trunks, or rock ledges.
