(aka: Pellaea viridis A1SA-011) This selection of C. viridis comes from the 3582' elevation in South Africa's Boasberg Mountains above the town of Somerset East. This form of the semi-evergreen Cheilanthes viridis made an 18" tall mound in the wild where it was growing in the rocks along a very dry dirt road.
