(aka: Amauropelta beddomei) Thelypteris beddomei is the Asian equivalent of the US native, Thelypteris noveboracensis. This marvelous, deciduous, deer-resistant fern makes an elegant groundcover to 6' wide in 4 years, admired by large numbers of our garden visitors. The 18" tall x 3" wide, finely cut, light-green fronds are held upright on the creeping rhizomes. Our 2005 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of Thelypteris beddomei 'Korean Traveler' is from spores from Korea's famed Cheju Island.
