Evergreen, height to 75cm. Hardy in zones 7-10.
A very beautiful fern (and especially hard to come by!) that doesn't exactly look like a fern! The mature fronds are a leathery, dark green with fawn brown hairs under the fronds, whilst the young fronds are a fresh peag green with bright silvery hairs on the underside.
This fern needs a very well drained and humus rich soil. It is as much at home in a container as well as the soil. A mature plant will be much admired in the garden with its distinctive colouration and form.
