A wonderful choice for the shade garden or as a houseplant! Named for the way it produces itty-bitty baby ferns on its leaves before depositing them onto the ground to grow, this evergreen ferngrows up to 2’ tall & 4’ across, with airy arching foliage. Its lacy form adds beautiful texture & dramato the garden. Consistently moist soil is the key to success with this plant, making it a perfect choice for a foggy coastal garden, or at the edge of a stream or water feature. Provide well-draining soil for a happy plant!
