This is an exquisite and fast growing form of the deciduous native male fern. D. 'Cristata Jackson' takes each fern frond and end it with a bushy afro like terminal crest. Smaller crests are found up and down the leaf on the end of each pinnae. A good location in a moist woodland will quickly produce a 2-3' wide clump.
