The most common and recognizable of the ferns, this is a very tough and hardy plant, featuring tall lacy fronds all season long; spreads aggressively and may require some control. Landscape use - great for textural effect, mass plantings naturalized and wooded areas. Rabbit resistant.

“The many great gardens of the world… all make the point as clear as possible: The soul cannot thrive in the absence of a garden.” –Thomas Moore (1478-1535)
