|Mature Size||Slow growing; reaches 15 ft. tall, 12 ft. wide.|

|Design Ideas||Perfect Fern for bringing down high walls in enclosed gardens, atriums and walled courtyards. Place against a vertical surface to encourage bending or let it stand alone as a centerpiece. Most attractive when grouped into a Fern dell, which is refreshing in hot climates. Keep away from hot or persistent winds.|
|Companion Plants||Fern ((Matteuccia); Sweet Flag (Acorus); Flowering Maple (Abutilon); Elephant Ear (Colocasia); Fatsia (Fatsia)|
|Care||Thrives in humus-rich, well-drained soil with warm, humid shade or dappled shade. Apply mulch to keep the root zone cool and conserve moisture. Water regularly during first few growing seasons to establish root system; once established, tolerates periodic dry spells but prefers evenly moist soils. Feed lightly, periodically throughout the year.|
