(syn: Thelypteris ovata var. lindheimeri A3T-028) During a weekend at Boerne (pronounced "Bernie"), Texas, I stumbled (not for the reasons you imagine) on this stunning form of Thelypteris normalis var. lindheimeri growing along the edge of Wasp Creek. Unlike the 18" tall form we already grew, this gem reached 3' tall with upright but elegantly arching, light green fronds. Everyone who has seen this at our garden has asked about it, so we've coaxed a few spores along. We grow this slowly stoloniferous fern in dry sand, showing that it thrives in a wide range of conditions.
