Ifound the lily miller moss out, but it was for lawns or roofs. This moss is right amoung my perennials.Can I use the one for lawns in my perenial beds?

Rather than use Moss Out, I'd scrape the moss out of the perennial beds and then work some compost into the soil. Moss usually indicates the soil drains poorly, is compacted, and is acidic. If you work some compost or other organic matter into the soil between and around the perennials you will help loosen it so it drains well, plus the organic matter will reduce acidity. Moss won't be so apt to grow in the bed once you've improved the soil. Best wishes with your perennial beds.
