I am not aware of a moss that is bluish-purple and folds up at night but there is a plant called Anacyclus depressus (Gnome's Hat) that grows only an inch or two high. The gray-green leaves are ferny. The flowers are white on top, with red undersides that show when the petals fold up at night or on a cloudy day.
