Are you ready for another sun loving fern. This Australian resurection fern prefers a dry sunny rock garden setting instead of a woodland location. The narrow upright dark green fronds (brown on back) make a delightful 1' wide tight clump. In extremely dry periods, it will curl up tightly like a couch potato, but after a good shower, it looks as lovely as ever.
