This small fern will do well in shady, well-drained sites. The attractive, lacy foliage can be semi-evergreen in ideal conditions or during mild winters. It serves as a food source for the pink-shaded fern moth whose small, camouflaged caterpillars munch on the leaves. Blunt-lobed cliff fern is found statewide growing on rocky, wooded slopes and limestone ledges.
