The distinctive shaggy, moss texture and neat habit of growth sets this variety of soft shield fern apart. Young plants have a shuttlecock shape but, as clumps build up, the shapes overlap so the impression is more of a mossy mound. This is a superb textural plant that contrasts well with glossy, hardy ferns such as Asplenium scolopendrium, and other striking shapes such as Solomon's seal and hostas. Plants are surprisingly drought-tolerant, although they dislike direct sun.
