Dryopteris filix mas Crispa Cristata
Product Details
A very robust variety of fern reaching around 60cms in the correct conditions. Broad fronds rise from a symmetrical crown and make the shuttlecock shape. The older fronds do persist through the winter months although they may, by spring, become damaged or broken. The new fronds appear from the centre of the rosette, the new croziers (fronds) being highly attractive as they unfurl. The fronds are the typical fern form, but in this case the tip of each pinnae is crested or divided into numerous leaflets.
