Evergreen in mild areas (zone 9), deciduous elsewhere.
Hardy in zone 7 (-17C).
A beautiful and distinctive form of the Lace Fern. Unlike the species this has a prostrate habit with narrower and smaller fronds. Easy to grow in moist well drained soil in light shade.
This beautiful fern was discovered in the garden of Mrs. MacFadden, and first published in 1957 by Conrad Morton in the American Fern Society Journal. It is now a very popular fern in North American gardens.
