The foliage of the Lemon Button Fern is a rich and vibrant shade of bright green, reminiscent of the zesty hue of a ripe lemon. Each leaflet is small and button-like, as the name suggests, with a gently serrated edge. This gives the fern a unique and intricate look, almost resembling a collection of tiny green buttons.
