Cyrtomium fortunei, commonly known as Fortune's holly fern, is a robust evergreen fern native to East Asia. This perennial plant is prized for its attractive, holly-like fronds that bring a touch of lush greenery to gardens and indoor spaces alike.

The fronds of Cyrtomium fortunei are its most distinctive feature, growing up to 60 cm in length. They are dark green, glossy, and pinnate with 10-20 pairs of leaflets that are sharply serrated, resembling holly leaves. The leaflets are arranged alternately along the central stem, creating a dense and bushy appearance. This fern thrives in shady or semi-shady conditions, making it ideal for woodland gardens, shaded borders, or as an understory plant beneath larger shrubs and trees.

Cyrtomium fortunei prefers moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. It is relatively low-maintenance, requiring minimal pruning and feeding. Regular watering is necessary to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. In colder climates, it can tolerate temperatures down to -10°C, though it benefits from a layer of mulch to protect the roots during harsh winters.

Propagation of Cyrtomium fortunei is typically achieved through division in spring or by sowing spores. Division involves separating the root ball into smaller sections, each with a portion of the rhizome and fronds, and replanting them in a suitable location. Spores can be collected from the undersides of mature fronds and sown in a controlled environment to produce new plants.

In addition to its ornamental value, Cyrtomium fortunei is also known for its resilience against pests and diseases, making it a reliable choice for gardeners. Its ability to thrive in low-light conditions and its evergreen nature ensure that it provides year-round interest, contributing to the texture and depth of planting schemes.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.
