2 litre pot £18.99

This fern is deciduous so all its fronds will die back in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again each spring.

  • Position: full or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, fertile, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    An elegant, graceful fern with delicate and intricate, bright green lace-like fronds. In spring, this wonderfully structural fern unfurls to reveal a calming, verdant presence. Perfect planted in a shady spot in your garden, with plenty of organic matter for that woodland feel.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould, composted pine needles or garden compost into the planting hole. In cold areas in late autumn protect the crown of the plant with a dry mulch of straw or bracken.
