Jurassic™ Triceratops Finger Fern

Pyrrosia polydactyla 'MONTRCT'

SKU
09496
Collected in Taiwan in 2012, one of the most exceptional of the Pyrossias, forming substantial evergreen mounds of leathery palmate foliage. In nature, it is often found growing on moss-covered rocky surfaces and will shrivel during dry conditions while resurrecting after rains. In the garden, it will stay lush when provided summer moisture. Ideal on a slope in partial shade, but can also be used as an easy care container plant.
