(syn: Cheilanthes sinuata) This attractive southwest US native is found on limestone outcrops and slopes from Texas south to South America, but is rarely seen in cultivation. The narrow, upright, semi-evergreen, thick green fronds with stunning white backs line the black stipe, forming a tight 18" wide upright clump with a short creeping rhizome. This is not a fern to be tried by beginners, as it is not as easy to cultivate as most others. In nature, it usually grows with its roots hidden beneath a large rock.
