Comments: A beautiful, variegated fern with unusual glossy, open fronds that have a prominent wide streak of yellow running down the center of each frond. Used as a container plant and in ground cover plantings. Ferns need a soil that has a generous amount of humus incorporated into the growing mix. Excellent for woodland gardens and other naturalistic sites where humus has accumulated over an extended period.
