Polystichum setiferum ‘Bevis’ | Bevis Soft Shield Fern

$9.00

Semi-evergreen to evergreen. Found growing wild in England by Mr. Bevis in 1876, this variety has been a fern collector’s prize ever since. Features satiny-green lance-shaped fronds with elegantly tapered tips on a low, spreading cushion. Crosiers and emerging fronds are covered in a soft, silvery down. It’s an equally impressive feature grown as a specimen, or massed in woodlands, beds, or borders. A fernery must-have!
