This accession of the 4-pinnate South African desert ferns hails from 4,000' elevation in the Eastern Cape near the town of Cathcart. Cheilanthes quadripinnata is a charming 10" tall clumper with finely cut foliage held on a jet black stipe that 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.
