I first purchased this unique fern at the garden of Elizabeth Stragmann of England, from an earlier Himalayan collection. Although reportedly not hardy, our plants have endured two winters of 0 degrees F without any problems. This deciduous fern arises in spring from a slowly creeping rhizome. Each frond resembles a rabbits foot fern...the most exquisite green lace that you can imagine. In the wild it grows on rocky cliffs to 14,000', but for us has been very happy in our woodland garden.
