This Asian holly fern is similar in form to the more common C. falcatum, except for the duller olive drab colored foliage. The 3' wide clumps of evergreen bold textured foliage make a great year round backdrop to other deciduous woodland perennials. This is probably the hardiest of the bold tropical textured ferns.
