Jeweled Chain Fern

Woodwardia unigemmata

A spectacular fern for the shade garden. Bold, arching, three-foot or longer fronds emerge with a striking red tint, making an exquisite curtain when planted atop a wall and allowed to naturally drape downward. Excellent texture for a woodland setting. Each frond produces small plantlets, which will grow when they touch the soil. Evergreen.
