Such a stunning perennial fern that puts on a lacy display of autumn color (in the spring of all things!) and needs minimal maintenance. This low growing accent foliage is great for a ground cover in your woodland shade garden or in a cozy spot next to a bench under the shade of a large tree. You will swoon every time you sit there. ;)
And it's very heat tolerant if given adequate shade and moisture. What's more to like? No other fern like it.
Light: Full shade Height: 30-36" (76-91cm) Width: 18-24" (46-61cm) Spacing: 12" Hardiness: Zone 5-9 Bloom Time: Spring-summer Color: Pink fiddle heads that turn coppery orange as they unfurl, then age to a lustrous dark green Water: Consistently moist soil Care: Grow in moist soil and partial to full shade in a protected site.
Suggestions: Nice as a ground cover or also creates a beautiful combo with bright annuals in container pots. Perhaps a bright Coleus or Brunnera and a 'Twisted Arrows' Rush. tucked in as well. Or maybe a container with a tall blooming Dalhia and a trailing vinca vine.
