Eared Lady Fern
Our highly ornamental offerings fashion distinctive 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.
Gracefully arching maroon stems plus mature, triangular pewter-green fronds set the stage for an eye-catching two-toned effect as the new growth unfurls in nearly iridescent lime-green hues. A lover of dappled shade and regular water, this extraordinary upright Asian fern makes a vivacious long-lived specimen for the darker recesses of your garden, where she remains evergreen in milder climates, weds well with Aruncus ‘Horatio’ and appreciates protection from hot sun.
Size: 18" high x 2' 0" wide.
