This unique fern is blue in colour (green in the winter) and has mitt shaped fronds that are deeply lobed. It can reach 12 inches tall with evergreen leaves. Will brighten up a shady area in the garden or in a container. Hardy to zone 8, this species is still a bit of an adventure -- we are unaware of anyone trying this in BC so far. Let us know if you have. Makes a good houseplant.
