Product Details
A reliable, hardy evergreen, similar to B. spicant but smaller which is rhizomatous and will spread to make loose mats with an indefinate width. It produces sterile fronds which may reach up to 15 cms long or so and these tend to lay more or less horizontal. The colour is deep green and remains untouched by harsh winter conditions. The fertile fronds are very attractive, theye are held very much vertical and are bronzy brown at first but later turn deep green in colour with the spores on the reverse side.
