Description

Height and Spread: 50cm x 50cm

This species of lady fern has stunning lance-shaped finely divided fronds, which are a luscious green colour from autumn through to spring. This deciduous fern is a vigorous grower often forming delightful clumps of foliage.

In regards to soil, it is happy providing the pH is acidic to neutral and the type is humus-rich.  It does need a sheltered position in dense or dappled shade.  Superb as an underplanter for roses and shrubs.
