This common European fern with finely cut, feathery grass-green fronds measures 2' x 2', or 4' x 4' if especially happy. Stalks and mid-ribs are covered with cinnamon scales. A real claim to fame, it tolerates root competition—perfect in the vicinity of large trees or shrubs! Plant in partial shade to full shade with well-drained soil to prevent crown rot. Evergreen.
