24 Types of Moss Color

 ,
Moss is an assortment of vivid green colors based on the color of moss plants. There are around 12,000 species of moss that are small flowerless plants that have no proper roots. Moss is particularly associated with Japanese gardens and culture. In fact, the word moss is mentioned in Japan's national anthem. In Japan, moss symbolizes longevity, resilience, time and history. This is due to the slow growth of many species of moss such that moss covered things are usually very old. Several temples in Kyoto have moss gardens that are hundreds of years old. For example, Kokedera temple's garden dates to 1339 and features 120 types of moss. Many of these varieties have a distinctive color such that the garden glows with extraordinary greens. The following are common types of moss color.
