(aka: Cystopteris fragilis var. protrusa) If you're looking for a short groundcover fern, look no farther than the North American native southern fragile or bladder fern, Cystopteris protrusa. Native to all of the states east of the Mississippi River, the deciduous Cystopteris protrusa can be found in moist woodlands, where it carpets the ground. In the garden, Cystopteris protrusa grows 1' tall and makes a 5' wide patch of narrow, lacy, upright fronds in 8 years.
