Wavy cloak fern

Astrolepis sinuata

A delightful fern for arid regions, perennial wavy cloak fern has a long name and a long life in the garden once it becomes established. It offers narrow, upright, semi-evergreen fronds with eye-catching white undersides. Perennial wavy cloak fern forms an upright clump and spreads slowly by rhizomes. In nature it thrives on limestone outcrops and rugged slopes. In the garden it is the perfect plant for dry, gravely soil. Pair it with other drought-tolerant natives for a texture-rich scene.

Note: While the leaves like full sun, the roots of this plant prefer to stay shaded. Use mulch or pair it with a low groundcover.
