    Design IdeasThis unique Fern is an excellent potted specimen. It grows in shaded niches in rock gardens and on the north side of buildings. Thicker than other Fern, it stands up to coastal breezes without tattering. Above all, it is among the few that survive well with salt air or saline water supply.

    Care Information
