This English selection of the deciduous male fern is the perfect choice for the shady rock garden. The rigidly upright dark green fronds are clothed with narrow pinnae (that's a leaflet to the horticulturally challenged) that curl downward giving a very congested appearance...that's horticulturally, not nasally congested. The dwarf slender male fern also makes a great companion for a variety of lonely lady ferns.
