Main asset

One of the most beautiful Ferns for bedding in fresh soil. Deciduous, it disappears in winter but its startup vegetation, in May, is beautiful with the rise of the young leaves rolled. The fronds are then emerald green all summer, in flared bouquets, and yellow in autumn.


It extends by horizontal underground rhizomes and can colonize several m².

Deciduous Fern with upright Fronds lanceolate pinnate, arranged in bouquets. The sterile fronds are emerald green, and surround fertile fronds, smaller, arranged in the center.
