(syn: Deparia petersenii) This robust and easy-to-grow deer-resistant fern has been a charmer in our garden for the last decade. The lime-green fronds reach 1' in length, making an attractive small clump. A. petersenii spreads by short rhizomes, making it just vigorous enough but not too aggressive to be a great garden specimen.
