(aka: Pelazoneuron ovatum var. lindheimeri) Thelypteris 'Tooth Fairy' is a 2023 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a Jimmy Turner selection of the US native Thelypteris ovata var. lindheimeri, that he found growing at a Texas dentist office, just before he moved to New Zealand. Thelypteris 'Tooth Fairy' forms a dense, winter-deciduous patch to 10' wide of 3' tall, upright, deer-resistant, light green fronds in 7 years. In the wild, it is usually found near water, but we find it perfectly happy in average moisture garden soil. Tooth Fairy maiden fern makes a superb groundcover mass in both full sun and light shade.
