C. cheilanthifolia is unfortunately hopelessly confused in the trade, so here is the real thing. This Chinese native has greenish brown foliage that is very stiff but very finely cut. In early spring, the clumps are topped with nice yellow flowers...great in a woodland garden or a rock wall...a great spring feature, although the foliage remains attractive all summer.
