Polystichum polyblepharum is an evergreen fern with elegant, stiff, lustrous, lance-shaped, glossy, dark green fronds. It forms symmetrical, outward-spreading, vase-shape clumps or shuttlecocks. Fronds have finely divided, overlapping pinnae and are covered in golden hairs when they emerge in spring. Polystichum polyblepharum is fussy about the soil and will thrive only in fertile, humus-rich, loamy, consistently moist, well-drained soils. It prefers partial shade, but can also grow well in full shade. In poorly drained soils, especially in winter, a crown rot may occur. It doesn’t have any serious disease or pest problems. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Japanese Lace Fern is a beautiful, elegant, ornamental fern, perfect for shady, well-drained areas of the garden. Excellent for under-planting of roses and shrubs, great for foundation plantings or as groundcover. It can grow well in almost any garden – informal, cottage, woodland, urban, rock and gravel garden. Very good for growing in pots and containers.

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.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
