Japanese Hollyfern, Japanese Netvein Hollyfern
Japanese holly fern is an evergreen to deciduous fern with fronds that are glossy and dark green with toothed edges resembling holly. Large spore structures are visible on the undersides of fronds.
Grow in average to fertile, moist but well-drained soil with humus in shade or part shade. Make sure not to plant too deeply. Where evergreen, Japanese Holly fern makes a rich, green groundcover in winter and summer. Holly fern is also an interesting specimen plant and makes an excellent houseplant. Cultivars include ‘Cristatum’ and ‘Rochfordianum’.
