This selection of deciduous deer-resistant lady fern from Europe is one of the most unique ferns available today. Found in 1857 in Ireland in the garden of a Mrs. Frizell, the tatting fern is known to most avid gardeners. The narrow fronds, to less than 1" wide, are clothed up both sides with fuzzy green, ear-like projections. I know this sounds really bizarre, but even normal folks are attracted to this unusual fern...a great 1' tall x 18" wide specimen plant for a special spot in the woodland!

Small frilly segments lining stems, resemble the loops and knots of tatting lace. In 1850, Irishwoman Mrs. Frizzle found this fern growing between 2 boulders on her farm. Was Mrs. Frizzle a tatter? We probably will never know...
