This unique, clumping fern has blue, mitt shaped, deeply lobed fronds. It keeps its leaves year round. It can take mild frost for short periods of time. In the winter the fronds may green up. Originally from Mexico and South America.

The 1’ tall glaucous leaves which look more like a snow mitt than a fern frond, emerge from the slowly-spreading, red-haired rhizomes that lay on top of the soil. Although the Blue Fern will grow in a wide range of soil types, slightly moist soils and a sloping site are best.
