Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

Given a position in full or dappled shade and a rich moist soil it will produce vigorous fresh-looking growth and remain attractive until frosts cut back the leaves. At maturity this fern can reach 80cm tall or more and slowly forms large clumps. They will look their best in a sheltered position where the finely toothed fronds can arrange themselves to their neatest undisturbed effect.

Expert Tip

There is some variation even in the species itself: some Athyrium filix-femina have green midribs whilst others have red ones.
