Davallia trichomanoides

Squirrel's Foot Fern

Their fuzzy creeping stems inspire several of these ferns' common names -- Deer's, Rabbit's and Squirrel's Foot Ferns. Best used in hanging baskets where their little "feet" curl over the edges. In nature, these stems or rhizomes attach themselves to tree trunks. Requiring less water than other ferns do, grow outdoors only in Zone 10. In other zones, grow outdoors only if brought inside in winter.
