Leptochilus ellipticus 'Hakusainami'

Regular price $35.00 Sale

This fern was previously known as Colysis ellipticus f. crispa variegata but now has been changed to Leptochilus ellipticus 'Hakusainami'. So if you purchased this under its former name, this is the same plant. This unusual cold-hardy fern has finger-like protrusions from the end of its fronds, which are elaborately frilled and tipped with white. I found this little jewel at a small rare plant consignment nursery in Japan some years back. It should be grown similarly to the Tongue Ferns, Pyrrosia lingua. It works well in a very organic soil in the garden or as a container subject. Fascinating!
