(CHINESE CHAIN FERN) The 3’ fronds on this beauty emerge in glowing hues of copper, pink or red slowly aging to a rich shade of green. Arching fronds are semi-evergreen and when mature can grow baby ferns at their tips. Plants are about 2’high and eventually 5-6’wide and specimen quality. Light to moderate shade, rich, well drained, moist soils produce the best looking plants. Mulch crowns for winter in colder areas. Deer resistant. USDA Z8(7b)-10 4” pot

Info

This fern produces long, red fronds with a lustrous, metallic sheen that slowly turn to green with age. The large fronds are naturally arching and can cover a lot of ground with plants growing to at least 6 feet wide. Small baby ferns are produced at the leaf tips. Still experimental on the west coast though apparently hardy to Zone 8. Plant in a protected location and provide a winter mulch to be safe.
