This German selection of the semi-evergreen Southern European native soft shield fern is a particularly narrow-leaf form. P. setiferum 'Herrenhausen' makes a 30" wide x 18" tall clump of soft, lacy green foliage. Although they prosper on the west coast, we have not been particularly successful in the Southeast. That being said, we know a few gardeners that have had success, so we keep trying to find the right spot. P. setiferum cultivars prefer slightly moist soils, with a pH near neutral.
