Woodwardia fimbriata - Giant Chain Fern

Woodwardia fimbriata grows in stream bottoms, shaded woodlands, and north facing slopes. The Giant Chain Fern grows 6-8 feet tall and wide and gradually spreads by 6" thick rhizomes. Woodwardia fronds live one season, plants look best if the old fronds are removed as the new ones come on. Woodwardia fimbriata is great for making a tropical look on a low water budjet. The Giant Chain Fern is Winter hardy to the low 20°s F.
