The Nicholas Diamond Leather Leaf Fern features broad, tropical looking, undulated foliage that has a slight waxy coating. Each frond has several sets of deeply cut lobes that virtually disappear beneath the almost overlapping pinnae on mature fronds, making it look almost like a delightfully exotic sea lettuce. This fern has a fuzzy creeping rhizome that puts up fronds along its length, and the white-golden fur on the rhizome is downy and upright.
