Product Description

The shuttlecock fern is one of the easiest to identify, its fronds making a large, striking and unmistakable shape. Although happy in shady, humus-rich borders among other plants, it looks best grown in groups on its own in dappled shade, in woodland, rich damp grass or in a shady pond margin.
