Considered one of the most beautiful garden ferns, this Asian/Mexican native has narrow, dark, glossy black green foliage, making a spectacular giant clump to 3' wide. As it is found in very high elevation areas, it prefers a site where a cool summer is possible. The semi-evergreen clump rarely forms offsets, so it is best used as a dramatic accent plant in the woodland garden.
