Crested Maidenhair Spleenwort (Asplenium trichomanes 'Cristatum')

10.00

A crested form of our native Maidenhair Spleenwort fern!  These attractive dwarves stay rather compact and are quite striking when they emerge with their black stems and bright lime green pinnae, slowly fading to darker green as they age.  The black stems and forked, crested tips give this fern an almost sea-creature like appearance that is a great addition to any rock garden.  As with other Maidenhair Spleenworts, these ferns prefer lots of moisture with good drainage.  Due to its short stature, this fern benefits from a top dressing of light gravel or small stones to keep rain from splashing mud up on its foliage.
