Mosses are small flowerless plants that typically form dense green clumps or mats, often in damp or shady locations.  Considered by botanists some of the oldest plants, some mosses date back 450 million years. That’s 50 million years before vascular plants like ferns appeared on Planet Earth. Their unique characteristics allow them to withstand extremes of climate change.
