This is what is known as a true Lineare with very slender reduced pinnules which develop beaded edges when the large sori overlap the sides to create a hard frizzled texture. Although this is a relatively tall grower the long-fingered crests at the pinnae tips impart a light airy effect. This form is a real mingler and needs the company of other bolder foliaged plants, such as hostas and solomon seal, to really be seen to advantage. The airy tracery of this form make it a highly valued subject for floral arrangements. Large clumps will produce fronds of several heights which will last for two to four weeks in clean water.
