    This evergreen fern is a native of Britain, with lustrous, long, narrow, dark green fronds forming a distinctive shuttlecock-like shape. It looks wonderful left to colonise in a woodland setting or under deciduous trees, where it will provide interest all year round. The filigree-like foliage looks stunning when it is covered in frost.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould, composted pine needles or garden compost into the planting hole. Remove dead foliage in spring.
