Dwarf Crested Soft Shield Fern (Polystichum setiferum 'Congestum Cristatum')

8.00

The densely compressed oblong-shaped pinnules of this compact soft shield fern show off against the layered papery brown chaff on the stipe and rachis reverse. The pinnae elaboration’s are sizably suited to the whole and their apical complexity carves a valley down the frond center. The frond color is muted to a dusky grayish-green. Congestum forms tend to be somewhat brittle and should be kept away from high winds and heavy traffic patterns.
