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

    This elegant, deciduous fern has deeply cut, greyish-green fronds effused with silver and purple. It's an excellent companion for shade-loving woodland plants, and will provide foliage interest for a shady, sheltered patio or courtyard garden with moist, fertile, neutral to acid soil.

  • 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
