Tassel Fern (Polystichum polyblepharum)

8.00

This is a luxurious grower with lustrous midnight green fronds reverse to a subdued frosted green. The numerous parallelogram shaped pinnules are overlapping, and combined with the closely spaced pinnae, the effect is one of stunning beauty. One of the most beguiling features of this fern is in the development of the croziers. They begin their unfurling in a normal manner and then flip backwards in a lax droop or tassel fashion. Gradually they right themselves and continue with the normal frond development. This fern favors an evenly moist dappled shady site. It does tend to respond to early warming trends and may suffer from crozier die back but it will recover and send up more growth later.
