Ferns do the darndest things, and anemias are near the top of the strange fern list. This Argentine native makes a delightful small clump to 8" tall x 8" wide. In nature, we saw these growing in well-drained soils and in rock cracks at 5900' in the Salta Province of northern Argentina. The fertile and sterile fronds look similiar, except that the fertile fronds produce long alien antennae-like "flower" stalks, which are home to the developing spores. We have found this to be very growable in our raised beds.
