About This Plant

Sun or shade. A delicate-looking, clover-like fern that forms spreading mats up to 8 inches tall. It makes a nice informal groundcover especially in poorly drained or shady situations or along walkways in shaded wildscapes. Expect it to die back during extreme cold or drought, but it swiftly rebounds.

Maintenance

None.
