You will receive a 10 ltr plant
Lophosoria quadripinnata is a beautiful and dramatic fern from Chile. It is closely related to a tree fern because it forms a horizontal stem with fronds that are held on tall stems. The fronds are mid green in colour, with a silver-white underside upto 120cm high.
Planting and care
Best grown in a sheltered, moist, shady site.
Ferns generally prefer shade and moist soil, especially in the hottest parts of the day. Most shady garden borders or woodland areas are perfect. If the area you are planting on is dry, or you are planting in summer make sure they are well watered until they are established. You should not need to feed your ferns in the garden, but a good mulch will help greatly.
Ferns will grow on most soils as long as your soil is not at the extreme ends of the pH scale (on chalk). Adding organic matter to your soil will help retain moisture in a sandy soil or open up the structure of a clay soil to stop water logging. Adding a good mulch will also help keep down weeds.
Great plants for the shady garden border, woodland planting, creating a fernery or as pot plants for a shady spot.
