Ferns do the strangest things and anemias are near the top of the strange fern list. This Argentine native makes a delightful small clump to 8" tall x 1' wide. In nature, we saw Anemia tomentosa growing both in well-drained soils and in rock cracks in the Catamarca Province of northern Argentina. The fertile and sterile fronds look similar, except the fertile fronds produce long, alien, antennae-like "flower" stalks from spring to fall that are home to the developing spores.
