(aka: Doodia media var. australis) Doodia australis calls the rocky cliffs of Australia and New Zealand home, yet it has faired wonderfully since 2006 in our open woodland garden. The small 6" tall clump spreads slowly to 18" in 5 years. The clumps are composed of thick, raspy, dark green leaves that emerge bright red in spring. Evenly moist to moderately dry soils are perfect for this charming, small rock garden fern. Who wouldn't want a dood from down under in their garden? Heck, buy several and start your own dood ranch.
