Dwarf Crinkled Male Fern (Dryopteris filix-mas 'Crispatissima')

8.00

The pinnule margins of this charming male fern are like the short undulate of a boat wake hitting the shore. The blade is somewhat narrower than most taller varieties and quite erectly rigid in habit. As in all crisped and congested forms this is very brittle and should be kept away form high foot traffic areas. This is a cherished treasure from my mentor, the late Reginald Kaye.
