Popular for its hardiness and handsome foliage, this fern makes an excellent groundcover or border edging in shady locations. Stiff, erect dark green shiny fronds of holly-like leaflets with coarsely fringed margins. Adds great texture to container plantings. Evergreen in mild winter climates.

Design Ideas: This unique Fern is an excellent potted specimen. It grows in shaded niches in rock gardens and on the north side of buildings. Thicker than other Fern, it stands up to coastal breezes without tattering. Above all, it is among the few that survive well with salt air or saline water supply.

Best with fertile, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Shelter from harsh afternoon sun. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with a balanced fertilizer during growing season. Provide winter protection in USDA zone 6. Cut back old fronds after new growth begins in spring.
