Polystichum polyblepharum (Korean tassel fern) (50 cells)

Log in for pricing

A favorite for the shady side of the garden. New fronds unfurl in a light, fresh, spring green; later, as the fronds mature, they turn a darker shade. Its homespun name, tassel fern, comes from the frond's unique unfurling habits. After they unwind, the tips hang down, giving it a resemblance of a tassel; however, these eventually straighten out. The fern is an excellent source for greens in the cutting garden, making a fine backdrop for flowers in the vase.
