(syn: Camptosorus rhizophyllus) This cute fern is found on alkaline outcrops from Minnesota south to Georgia. Asplenium rhizophyllum is one of the most unfern-like ferns we have grown. The bizarre, narrow, 5-7" long x 1/2" wide, glossy, green leaves lie nearly flat on the ground. Each leaf tip produces another plant where it touches down. This is not a fern for beginners since it requires a specialized habitat such as rotting logs or moist, mossy rocks, although it can withstand short periods of drought. We believe these to be some of the first nursery-propagated plants to be sold.
