This easy-to-grow, deer-resistant native fern is adaptable to moist sunny gardens as well as dry shade. This collection of A. filix-femina ssp. asplenioides is grown by spores from a vigorous large growing collection that we found Harnett Co., NC. The 8" wide upright light green fronds can reach 3' tall when happy. This clumper is great when planted in mass as a backdrop for hostas in the woodland garden.
