  • Plant for shade

A wonderful fern from the Himalayas with very striking new fronds. These emerge a bright yellow-green colour and mature to a darker chartreuse shade. 

Prefers a fertile, well-drained soil in shade.

Height:  12 - 24 inches / 30 - 60cm

Spread:  12 - 24 inches / 45 - 60cm

Lynne’s notes:

What a fern!! I absolutely adore this species and thank you Mr Stewart for discovering it. The colour of the fronds means this fern looks fresh all season. In deep shade this fern really ‘pops’ and adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the shady border.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.

  • Courier Service

  • Click And Collect

    Collection is available from the nursery by appointment only or from one of the events we’ll be attending. During May, June and July our show schedule is very busy so appointments are not always possible and also at other times if we are away attending an event.
