(aka: Myriopteris lanosa) Cheilanthes 'Mighty Tidy', a 2012 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction is a splendid dwarf form of our native Cheilanthes lanosa that popped up here as a sporeling. In our full sun rock garden, it has made a compact clump to 6" tall x 1' wide. Each frond of this deer-resistant dryland fern is dramatically smaller and narrower than is typical for Cheilanthes lanosa. Well-drained soils are a must for Cheilanthes lanosa to thrive.
