Beautiful
by Tree hugger, April 2, 2017

I've not had good luck growing ferns in the past. This one seems like a winner for my needs. The color variation, watering requirements, root system, and adaptability to different amounts of sun and shade seem ideal for under and around live oak trees. I think I prefer them as large bunches versus mass planting. Have wondered about mixing it with foxtail ferns.
