(aka: P. setiferum 'Plumoso-densum') This unusual form of the semi-evergreen soft shield fern makes a 14" tall x 18" wide clump, composed of very finely divided fronds resulting in a very lacy appearance. When grown well, P. 'Plumosomultilobum' will form small viviparous (without the benefit of meaningful sex) plantlets on the leaf in October and November. This has been one of only a few Polystichum setiferum cultivars to thrive in our hot, humid climate.
