A "Clubmoss" similar in its upright stature to martensii, but perhaps more compact with a bit coarser substance and a lovely dull gloss surface on each elaborately fingered wave of foliage which narrows when spore is produced. Quite interesting.
Fabulous ferny carpet with all new growth tipped bright yellow against the darker mature clubmoss foliage--the fans of growth are wider and slightly more erect initially than those of the very similar 'aurea.'
