(INDIAN HOLLY FERN) This slow growing fern is the most asked about fern in our garden! The shiny green leaves are held horizontally and each leaf has a golden yellow stripe right down the center! Surreal looking…evergreen, 12-18” tall and eventually 18-24” wide. Lt shade to shade, decent soil, frequent moisture (our takes some dry shade) – also does well as a potted plant in the house. If anyone still does terrariums, this would be stunning with one of those neon yellow poison arrow frogs sitting on top! Z7

This fabulous 18" tall x 18" wide evergreen fern features a wide streak of yellow down the center of each plastic-textured leaf. It is reliably hardy in Zone 7, although the new growth emerges very late (reports indicate success in parts of Zone 6). This is the one plant that visitors to your woodland garden will absolutely drool on, so invite a crowd of folks over if you're having a drought.
