Maidenhair Spleenwort Fern - Asplenium trichomanes

Regular price $8.99

If the name hasn't got your attention, the photos will! Lol! Check out how lovely this fern is with its black spines and tiny leaflets on each branch.This little gem is apparently growing worldwide around the globe but its only recently rocked our world of gardening in miniature. It's well behaved and very pretty. 
It will grow a little taller than it is in the pot, but there is no getting around just how awesome it looks. Compact, delightful and apparently incredibly tough once established in the in-ground garden - which means it is drought tolerant.
It's perfect for containers too! 
Use it in the shade or part shade. Cold-hard to zone 3 or -40F!
