Hairy Lip or Wooly Lip Fern
Cheilanthes tomentosa

The Wooly Lip Fern, is a xeric fern – it prefers dry sunny locations rather than moist woodlands. The fronds screen themselves from sun with hair and scales giving them a fuzzy appearance.

They are sometimes called resurrection ferns as they can dry up completely and then come back to life when watered. This is a clumping native fern that can naturalize, with very upright fronds grouped tightly. They love rocky locations. I planted some with Artemisia Silver Mounds – very striking.

All of our plants and seedlings are grown organically and are timed size-wise and transplanted for optional growth and production.
