This native fern is a semi-evergreen with a wonderfully compact habit. It boasts tall, bright green fronds which are crested and ruffled along their margins, thus adding texture and interest to shady borders. Each new frond appears from the ground, and slowly unfurls to reveal the bright green colour. This fern is ideal for planting in a rockery or woodland-style garden, and prefers a shady site. The name ‘filix-mas’ is derived from the Latin ‘flix’, meaning ‘fern’, and ‘mas’, meaning ‘male’.
