French Staghorn Fern

Platycerium veitchii 'Lemoinei'

French Staghorn Fern

This native Australian staghorn grows on sun exposed boulders and rocks and is heat loving. In its native location it has to survive droughts of 2 months or more without rain. As with many drought tolerant plants its foliage is slightly glaucous with waxy hairs that protect it. It should be watered sparingly in winter. Excellent on plaques and in wooden or wire baskets.
