MICROLEPIA strigosa - Lace Fern

Lace Fern forms soft mounds of feathery, pointed fronds that lend a woodland feel to any shady spot. This attractive fern is native to Hawaii and other tropical and subtropical parts of the world. Graceful, arching fronds are arranged in dense clumps of 2-3 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide which expand by rhizomes. Despite its delicate appearance, it is a sturdy plant that’s fairly water thrifty and cold hardy to around 20 degrees Fahrenheit. It will also tolerate coastal conditions and is deer resistant. It is well-suited for use as a filler between shrubs or as a foundation plant in shade gardens, and can also be used as a lush groundcover or to add textural interest to flower beds. Lace Fern does best in partial shade or morning sun with consistent moisture.
