(syn: P. serrulata) This cutie has proven to be quite hardy in our garden, despite rumors to the contrary. The spider brake fern has narrow, skeleton-like, thick green leaves and makes a nice 18" tall x 2' wide clump. It is occasionally found throughout the Southeast where it naturalizes in such inhospitable sites as mortar joints, rock walls, and abandoned vehicles...which indicates an affinity for alkaline conditions and rust. This is a very easy fern for a sunny garden location where a "ferny" texture is needed.
