Does anyone know if the moss that grows on a creek bank is what you can use on topiaries or in them and how do you prepare it. I have two kinds. Do you wash dirt off which is clay like or sterilize it somehow? I probably have 10 semi's full. Should be good for something. And river rock that sticks up out of a stream that grow moss when the creek is down which is most of the time. AND about cudju: I have a hillside with this stuff coming toward me and I wondered about making wreaths and topiaries from it. Would it sprout when it got close to dirt even if it was dried and shaped into topiaries globes and tree forms.

I think your creek bank moss will be too crumbly when dry. Use long fibered sphagnum moss instead.

Cudju? Kudzu?
