Our highly ornamental offerings of this genus fashion remarkable fronds sprouting from a deciduous clump that relishes shady damp recesses. Old leaves can be left standing throughout the winter and cut back in the spring, just after the new ones burst forth.
Gleaming with metallic highlights plus lavish burgundy-infused stems and veins, the arching triangular smoky-green fronds are a study in elegance. ′Red Beauty′s short branched rhizomes nourish the broad slow-spreading mound that forms a substantial easily maintained colony over time. Undeterred by deer, bunnies and most pests, this posh deciduous fern craves the shadows of adequately moist alcoves, where its feathery fine-hewn textures offset broad-leafed perennials such as Epimedium and Asarum to great effect.
Size: 12" – 18" high x 12" – 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
