Coniogramme jinggangshanensis 'Shishi' is a rather rare and unusual form of the Asian bamboo fern. The upright, dark glossy-green, 2' tall fronds are composed of large pinnae (fern leaflets), each ending in a fancy petticoat-like crest. Expect a 3' wide patch in 5 years, thanks to the spreading rhizome. Rich, moist soils result in the best growth, while very dry soils will slow its spread to a crawl...a dramatic and unique specimen in the garden! In mild winters, it remains completely evergreen, but when winter temperatures drop to single digits, it will be tardily deciduous.
