Shuttlecock Fern

Ferns are wonderful structural plants which are ideal in a woodland garden, a damp border or to grow at the edge of a pond. The varieties offered are fully hardy and thrive in humus-rich, moist but well drained neutral to slightly acid soil, in dappled or partial shade.

A beautifully symmetrical deciduous fern with broadly lance-shaped, dissected, pale green sterile fronds up to 4ft (120cm) or more. In late summer, shorter lance-shaped dark brown fertile fronds appear and these persist over winter. Grow in moist shade, a damp border or at the edge of a pond. Height 4-5ft (120-150cm), spread 3ft (90cm).
