Polystichum seti. Herrenhausen
Soft shield fern

Height: Short

Planting Zone: 1

This German fern selection forms a low mound of fine-textured feathery fronds, almost with the appearance of curly parsley. It performs best in soils that remain evenly moist, and slightly on the acidic side. Fronds remain evergreen in mild winter regions. Attractive in a shady rock garden, along the edge of a border or in containers. Remove any brown fronds in spring. This plant is also suitable for the Pondside/Bog garden. Place around the edge of a pond, providing soil is damp and not waterlogged. Alternatively plant in damp areas of the garden.
