Deep-Lobed Japanese Sword Fern
Item #: 12014
Zones: 7b to 10b, at least
Height: 18" tall
We are madly in love with Deparia lobato-crenata...an amazing Japanese endemic fern, only officially published in 1977. Our 2005 planting of Deparia lobato-crenata formed a 7' wide patch in 10 years. The dark glossy green, 18" long x 1.5" wide, narrow, upright fronds create a truly unique appearance in the woodland garden. Deparia lobato-crenata has proven quite easy to grow in average, slightly acidic garden soils. It's been cultivated so little, we don't know its northern hardiness limit.
