Design Ideas This great upstanding fern is exceptional form for wild gardens. Plant in masses under protective tree canopies and within woodland groves. A super choice for sideyards that need bold fillers. Such good form is also super valuable massed into modern gardens, particularly in the urban environment. May be added to shade borders for height or background and color. A stunning background for fountains and problem solver for acidic, light challenged gardens.
