Description

Polystichum polyblepharum "Tassel Fern" features upright, shiny dark green fronds with a narrow rusty-brown stem supporting even-sided leaflets. Fronds have small hairs on the tips of leaflets and are noticeable when new fronds unfurl from clumps in the center of the growing, plant giving it a distinct “Tassel” appearance.

Polystichum polyblepharum is slow growing and hardy, preferring partial to full shade and moist soil, but maintains an evergreen appearance in the right conditions. Polystichum polyblepharum is deer resistant and makes an excellent addition to any shaded areas, woodland garden, or landscape borders.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
