Sickle Leaved Holly Fern
An unusual and impressive evergreen fern for partial to full shade, forming mounds of beautiful segmented and twisted fronds.
The native range of this species spans China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam.
Like all ferns, it is not a flowering plant – instead reproduction takes place via a complex two stage life cycle. The fern plants we use in gardening are the spore producing stage: Spores can be located on the underside of fertile fronds, often in little pouches called ‘sori.’
Care & Size Guidance
This fern likes to spread itself out with a final span of 80-100 centimetres, making a great plant for filling up shadier areas – just remember not to overcrowd it when planting.
