Deparia lobato-crenata (syn. Lunathyrium lobatocrenatum)


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Another one of those hyphenated names which pique our interest beyond sane rationale no doubt due to some character defect on our part but there is nothing defective about this Japanese gem. Glossy evergreen leaves are evocative of Blechnum which is high praise in our book. Gently, almost apologetically creeps to form a congenial aggregation of crowns. This formerly was placed in different genera such as Diplazium and Lunathyrium and one can sometimes find this plant labeled as such. Thanks to plantsman Lance Reiners for sharing this with us.
