Create a Japanese Serenity Garden with mixed ferns, colored foliage trees, and reflectiing ponds.

Unfurling fronds add a hint of architectural flavor, making this a versatile plant in any shady area of your garden.

CARE
Care Easily grown in fertile, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, water as needed to maintain consistent soil moisture. Fertilize periodically during growing season. Cut back old fronds when new growth begins in spring.
