(syn: Pteris serrulata) Pteris 'Jade Waterfall' represents a Chinese collection of the normally tender Pteris multifida that has proven to be surprisingly winter hardy in our garden. The spider brake fern has narrow, skeleton-like, thick, green arching leaves that form a nice 1' tall x 15" wide clump. Pteris multifida prefers a near neutral pH, but is amazingly adaptive. Pteris multifida 'Jade Waterfall' is a very easy fern for a partially sunny garden location where a "ferny" texture is needed.
