So far in a year I have had no maintenance for this fern. Nothing from the ordinary cutting back in the winter, etc.
I love these because as long as you keep them in the shade with little sun and give them water they will grow.
It is a must have around a water garden
Thanks is all I can say for a great plant and great customer service
This plant does the best in the shade. I made the mistake and planted it in sun and needless to say it burnt. :(
