This evergreen fern (native to the UK) is such an elegant addition to our shady 'green garden' situated on the north side of the curator's residence. We sited it within a rockery, where the angled stonework channels water to the roots, as this plant loves moisture.
To ensure summertime happiness, we spritz the area three to four times a week, as this plant does NOT want to dry out.
If happy, it will spore in elsewhere, and always in the right place. Be careful of siting this plant near a large conifer, as root weevils love to chew on fern fronds!
