(aka: Notholaena eckloniana) One of the most exciting plants we saw on our 2005 expedition to South Africa was a desert fern, Cheilanthes eckloniana. Although we have only dropped to 15 degrees F since we have had it in the garden, it has remained evergreen so far. The steely blue-green fronds emerge from the hairy tan croziers to form an 8" tall x 8" wide deer-resistant clump. These spore-grown offerings are from plants around 4,200' in the Transkei region of the Eastern Cape. C. eckloniana is named after the 1800's Danish plant collector Christian Ecklon.
