Fern Polystichum polyblepharum
This Asian species of Polystichum forms a vase-shaped clump of semi-evergreen fronds. As the fronds unfurl, the ends flip backwards creating ‘tassels’. Unique and rare in the trade.
Ferns’ fine feathery textures make them the ultimate shade foliage plant. Most do best with even moisture and part shade. Ferns either creep with underground rhizomes or stay in a cluster – see note for each variety.
