Adding interest to a landscape, the semi-evergreen Shaggy Shield Fern forms a rosette of fronds, with black scales on the stipes (or ridges) providing contrast with the bright green blades.

Bursting out of the ground in a neat fountain shape, use this fern as a feature in a dark corner of the garden or for a simple, minimalist garden design. This fern is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence.
