This is a magnificent garden fern producing a shuttlecock of long, upright, pale green fronds with contrasting brown, scaley stems in spring. In mild winters it'll stay green, but in cold, exposed positions it's deciduous. Despite needing shade, it happily tolerates several hours of sun each day, and is more wind-resistant than most ferns. Very effective in damp parts of the garden where it has terrific presence, contrasting well with low groundcover. It has been given the Award of Garden Merit by the RHS.
