WHY PLANT IT: The graceful fern adds whimsy and character to the garden. Its bright green fronds pop against white, black and bronze plants.
WHERE: This unusual fern is best in light, open or dappled shade with rich well-drained soil. Avoid locations with hot afternoon sun to keep the delicate foliage from burning. Provide an open location with limited competition from other plants along with regular summer watering.
ACTUAL SIZE: a 10-year-old woody plant or a 5-year-old perennial or bulb will grow to about 1 3/4 feet high by 1 3/4 feet wide.
