Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Rickwebb On Feb 3, 2014, Rickwebb from Downingtown, PA wrote:

This native species is offered for sale at a good number of larger garden centers in the East and Midwest USA. It is a slowly spreading clump of deep green, semi-evergreen, bipinnate fronds about 2 to 3 feet high. I easily transplanted some from a customer's yard to another part-shade site at a church building foundation.
