A stunningly crested version of the Pacific Northwest native licorice fern! Like other licorice ferns, 'Grandiceps Diane' is wintergreen, holding its fronds through the fall, winter and spring and then taking a brief rest during during the dryest periods of the summer. They are capable of growing vertically in thick patches of moss (typically found on big-leaf maples), and can also be cultivated on the ground or in shallow containers or hanging baskets. This showy version of the licorice fern also makes an excellent container specimen, as they do not mind irregular watering and are capable of going dormant during periods of drought.
