So, how many South African ferns do you grow? This virtual goldmine of hardy ferns has been ignored by most temperate fern gardeners. We are pleased to present this charming little, 10" tall deer-resistant sun fern from a particularly nice congested foliage population in South Africa's Eastern Cape Province at Naudesneck Pass at 7947' elevation. The finely cut foliage held on a jet black stipe feels like hard plastic. In the wild, Cheilanthes quadripinnata occurs in rocky cracks just below the high forests. For us, it occurs in our full-sun rock garden.
