Button Fern2


The button fern, also called the round-leafed fern, is an evergreen fern (of the Pteridaceae family) with small dark green leaves attached to a thin stem. “Rotundifolia” refers to the roundness of the leaves, and the genus name, Pallaea, comes from the Greek word meaning “dark,” a reference to the stems that turn dark red with age. Plants in the genus are also sometimes referred to as “cliff brakes.”



Button fern houseplants are small and low-growing ferns with arching fronds of beautiful, round leaflets. They are native to New Zealand and are not as fussy as the majority of other ferns. This plant is not to be confused with the lemon button fern which is a completely different plant (Nephrolepsis cordifolia).
