Selaginella braunii isn't a fern or an arborvitae, but instead is a member of an obscure plant gang known as the spikemosses. Named after 19th century German botanist/pteridologist Alexander Braun, the dark green, lacy, semi-evergreen fronds of Braun's arborvitae fern rise to 18" tall from a slowly creeping rhizome. In 3 years you could expect a 2' wide groundcover mass. The easy-to-grow, deer-resistant Selaginella braunii is a textural garden highlight alongside bolder foliage like hosta, Solomon's seal, and ajuga.
