Just ordered William Cullina's new book "Native Ferns Mosses & Grasses - From Emerald Carpet to Amber Wave: serene and sensuous plants for the garden".
http://www.williamcullina.com/Page13.html

All of which have piqued my interest in the last year. The ferns I have a reasonable grip on, I've been looking at them for a couple of years now; but the mosses and grasses have eluded me. I do have some familiarity with the 10 or so common grasses, but that's only a small portion of what's out there. And when you add the sedges and rushes I get overwhelmed.

The mosses are my latest interest, and the one that I know least about. I am growing some mosses that I collected last fall, but I really don't know what I'm doing :lol: . Most of the information that's available in books and on the web is limited to chopping it up, painting it on something and hoping for the best. Hopefully Cullina's book will dig much deeper in to the culture of mosses. I'd really like to know how to grow it like any other plant.

Got my book, and I'm very pleased with it. Very similar to his other two books on native plants - pleasant to read, and the topics are thoroughly covered. Lots of rarely discussed grasses, sedges and rushes that are suitable for home landscaping. Likewise on ferns. The mosses are not as thoroughly covered, but the material that is presented is very useful. Superb photo's throughout the book.
