Dwarf Crisped Golden-scaled Male Fern (Dryopteris affinis 'Crispa Gracilis')

8.00

This most remarkable dwarf is highly suited for the rock or miniature garden area. The frond is lanceolate in outline and not more than two to three inches at its greatest width. The closely set slender pinnules end with "curved hook-like tips". The color is subdued to a pewter-hued green from the vibrant green of the species. This fern is often listed under the name 'Crispa Congesta' which may seem applicable by character but that not a published name before 1959 and therefore invalid.
