The messiah of ferns, here to prove wrong all the doubters, turning "all ferns look the same" to ashes in their mouths, and looking darn adorable while doing it. This is a particularly good form, accentuating the best characteristics, in this case minuteness and roundness. Half inch glossy evergreen coinlike fronds packed together on spreading rhizomes forming a glorious sea of scales. Unlikely to be hardy in Washington but a great one for a terrarium setting.
