A relatively small, hardy evergreen fern, Asplenium Scolopendrium Angustatum is commonly known as Hart's Tongue Fern. This is a clump forming plant with lovely ruffled edge fronds that unfurl to display the young leaves, which are bright green in colour and gradually become a little darker as they age. Remember ferns are naturally found in woodland settings, so they will do best in shade or dappled shade, they are used to growing 'under the canopy' of trees so full sun should be avoided. Asplenium's will also grow in tight nooks and crannies and they are useful for planting on banks and slopes in an alkaline to neutral soil. It will tolerate dry shade but should be kept moist and mulched during the first season, to allow it to get established.
Hart's Tongue Fern will also do well in a container, provided it is in the shade and the soil is kept moist, perfect for creating interesting foliage and contrast on a patio or terrace setting.
Our Fern Collection is made up of quality specimen plants and are more mature and larger than those usually found for sale. Hart's Tongue Fern will grow to a Max Height and spread of 0.5-1 metre.
