Wavy cloaks are native to the southwestern parts of Texas. Mature heights 6" to 12". They are well adapted to arid conditions and like well drained, somewhat alkaline soils. The fronds dry out and curl up, looking very dead when water stressed, but will rapidly turn green and unfurl when watered. They prefer light to partial shade.
