Holding its deep green color and frond integrity year-round, “Leatherleaf Fern” makes an easy, permanent, low-maintenance groundcover for dappled shade to (coastal) partly sunny areas. Growing 2’-4’ tall (depending on shadiness), this plant spreads slowly, which works nicely for small spaces or in a hanging basket. Lovely, dense, lacy-looking triangular leaves are highly valued by flower arrangers, as these durable fronds are long lasting when cut. Can be grown indoors too! Tolerates salt spray. Toss on some compost annually for the prettiest appearance.
