As they age the feathery, dark green fronds of this handsome, evergreen 'hard fern' spread semi-horizontally to form an attractive, rosette-like shape. One of our recommended varieties, it provides all-year interest for shady areas of the garden and companionship for shade-loving, woodland plants.
- Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould, composted pine needles or garden compost into the planting hole.
