Davallia perdurans PMD


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist

A collection by plantsman Philip MacDougall from 10,500 feet in Taiwan of this excellent Squirrel's Foot fern which is one of the hardiest species growing up to 11,500 feet. Typically this is epiphytic on trees or epilithic on rocks with the takeaway for cultivation success being good drainage. This has easily handled 10F in a stumpery. Previously sold as Davallia cf. trichomanoides, before ace plant hunter Nick Macer gave us a tip on the correct ID, thanks Nick!
