Spleenwort Fern - Asplenium Platyneuron
This Spleenwort Fern, sometimes also called the Ebony Spleenwort Fern, looks very similar to the Christmas fern in terms of leaf and frond shape. However, the Spleenwort Fern can grow to a mature height and width of roughly half the size! So if you love the look of Christmas Ferns, but need a smaller option for a potted plant or to act as a garden liner or groundcover, the Spleenwort Fern is an excellent option. Another great benefit of Spleenwort Ferns is that they are evergreen, and will keep their exotic emerald color through winter. Spleenwort Ferns are native to the eastern coast of North America, and therefore very adaptable to different soils and climates.
