Asplenium scolopendrium 'Undulata'

Udulating Harts Tongue Fern

Another lovely variety of Hartís Tongue fern. This European selection forms a nice clump of evergreen, horizontal 'tongues'. This one is similar to the species but the fronds have gentle waves, or undulations, along the frond. The interesting wavy foliage makes a very attractive ground cover when planted en masse. Sharp drainage and a near neutral pH required. Very attractive and easy to grow. Fits in well with both ornamental and natural plantings. Syn: Phyllitis scolopendrium 'Undulata'
