Deparia x tomitaroana (syn. Diplazium x tomitaroanum)


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
This naturally occuring hybrid Deparia comes to us via plantman Lance Reiners. Forms a clump of glossy dark green single fronds, each of which is marked by an extremely crenate margin, think scrapbooking scissors. The overall effect is rather eel-like and somewhere between a small blechnum and a tongue fern. Very unusual and quite attractive, wants a wet but well drained spot. Should be hardy down to Zone 7 given its parentage but will possibly go slightly lower.
