(aka Onychium A1TW-154) Onychium japonicum 'Waterfall Trail' is a plant we first spotted hiking on our way to the Taoshan Waterfall in Taiwan's Taichung County at 7,000' elevation. Our offerings are spore-grown plants from what was a diminutive 4" plant in the wild that grew clinging to the cracks in the steep rocky cliff. In the garden, Onychium 'Waterfall Trail' has formed a very compact clump but to 15" tall. The compact clump also spreads quite slowly compared to the other forms of Onychium japonicum that we've grown. The lacy green, deer-resistant leaves create a wonderful fine texture in the open/light shaded woodland garden.
