The young fronds of this striking fern are coppery red and slowly mature to dark green as the season progresses. Definitely one we would recommend.

Prefers a moist, fertile soil in partial shade. Although slow-growing it is worth the wait as mature specimens are absolutely stunning. Will remain evergreen in mild winters. Will tolerate dry shade once established.

Height: 18 - 24 inches / 45 - 60cm

Spread: 12 - 24 inches / 30 - 60cm
