More Information About Ceterachopsis

The genus Ceterachopsis was created in the 1940's as a placeholder for a handful of Chinese fern species in the genus Asplenium but with some unusually primitive traits. The species in the genus Ceterachopsis are all Asian ferns (China and Himalayas) but one of the species, C. dalhousiae, has also been found growing in two wildly disjunct and unlikely places...Ethiopia and the mountains of Arizona and Mexico in an environment known as a sky-island of shady, rocky, moist ravines cut into the mountains. Despite the rarity of this genus, in the garden Ceterachopsis should be treated like other ferns...woodland conditions of part shade and moist, rich soil.
