Description:

One of the most robust and reliable, this hardy native male fern offers superb texture with glossy, leathery, toothed, dark green foliage. Vigorous evergreen clumps are formed by many long fronds; up to four feet long in cool, shady sites. Keeps up appearances even in warm, arid climates, though plants will be more compact.
