A beautiful and easy woodland fern, native across the Northern Hemisphere. The large light-green triangular fronds form a good-sized clump with a well behaved, non-spreading habit. Well suited to use in any moist, shady situation. Combines well in the garden with Hosta and most other shade-loving perennials. Also useful in tubs or mixed containers. Deciduous, remove old fronds in late fall or spring. Mulch around the plants with dead leaves in the fall, to help conserve moisture in summer.
