- Botanical Name: Pellaea rotundifolia
Common Name(s): Button fern, Round-leafed fern
Description: Native to the forests of New Zealand, the Button Fern has many pairs of small, soft, oval-shaped leaves on fronds that can reach up to 18" in length. It is more resistant to cold (but not freezing) temperatures and lower humidity than other ferns, so the soil needs to drain well before each watering. Compact and soft, the Button Fern is perfect on shady window sills or in bathrooms.
