  (Award of Garden Merit)

Family Aspleniaceae
Originating from Temperate regions of N. Hemisphere

Many fancy crested cultivars of this native fern exist, but the simple, clean lines of native Asplenium scolopendrium, with whole, undivided leaves is still the best.
The evergreen shuttlecock-like crowns of bright green, strap-shaped, lush, leathery fronds, with wavy margins brighten the garden in winter. It spreads by creeping rhizomes and can create great drifts. Plants benefit from a tidy in spring - cut off any dead leaves before the new ones emerge.
Grow in shade. Prefers alkaline, chalky soils but will tolerate slightly acid soils.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 50cm
