Description

There are few things more elegant than this frosted fern which looks like every frond of every leaf has been painted a soft grey.

I particularly love this evergreen in containers for a table centre, all year, in sun or shade.

Care Tips

Performs well in a cool location in any rich, evenly moist soil. Add plenty of organic mulch to the soil every year and remove old foliage late winter.
