Three Kings davallia, Davallia tasmanii, is a rare creeping fern native to the Three Kings Islands in New Zealand. A particularly attractive fern, its leathery fronds grow up to 20 cm in length. It spreads by creeping rhizomes and spores.
Grow Davallia tasmanii in well-drained soil or compost. It does well in containers, even when root-bound, and resents root disturbance. It’s ideal for growing as part of a permanent container display in a sunny spot. Frost tender, you may need to move it undercover for winter.
