This plant is no longer for sale from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. It is strictly on our website for information purposes only.

Looking much like prehistoric parsley, this fun and fantastic fern is easier than it looks. Not finicky about much, this is truly a classy lady. Easy in the garden and a great fluffy filler in shady pots. Distinctive and deciduous it joins its cousin, 'Dre's Dagger' as a unique addition to your customer's garden.
