Product Details
This is the form of fern that most people think of when the word 'fern' is mentioned. Large fronds rise to form the typical shuttlecock shape, occasionally to 90 cms high and almost as wide. The pinnae are serrated and deep green in colour although they are very pale yellowish-green when young. The midrib is covered with deep brown, almost black, scales and make an excellent contrast to the young foliage colour.
