Davallia trichomanoides

Squirrel’s Foot Fern

Asian native. Very finely divided evergreen fronds to about 1 ft. long, 6 in. wide, rise from light reddish brown, furry rhizomes (resembling squirrel’s feet) that creep over soil surface. Hardy to 30°F/–1°C; can be used in mild-winter areas as small-scale groundcover in partly shaded areas. Best used in any climate as a hanging-basket plant. Use light, fast-draining soil mix. Feed occasionally.
