This Asian native has naturalized in concrete walls and other such alkaline places along the East Coast, and therefore has been overlooked as a garden specimen. In our trials, this has proven to be a great upright garden specimen. Its narrow, fuzzy, light-green fronds and vertical stature allow it to be used among other plants without eating them alive. While it prefers moist soils, our dry acidic sand has suited it just fine.
