Cheilanthes lanosa

hairy lip fern

Small, evergreen, rock and crevice dwelling fern with olive-green woolly fronds and chestnut-brown stipes, native to the Eastern United States. Grows 6 - 8 inches tall, slowly spreading by creeping root stocks 12 - 15 inches wide. Loose and gritty, well drained soils a must, otherwise easy to grow in bright or part shade. This dryland fern requires moderate to occasional water in western gardens. Excellent rock garden subject. Good in containers too.
