Fortune’s Holly Fern grows quickly into a clump of bold, arching leaves that have long, scythe-shaped leaflets along a central stem. It is evergreen except in the coldest zones, and it is more cold-resistant than the Japanese holly fern. The leaves are 2 or 3 feet long, and up to 4 feet on older plants in ideal conditions. Their glossy surface makes them attractive and showy, adding richness and warm green to shady beds in your garden. Grow with other shade-loving plants like Hosta to brighten dark beds. This fern can also be grown as a houseplant in cool rooms and porches.

  • Bold, glossy, evergreen leaves
  • Evergreen in all but the coldest zones
  • Ideal for shady parts of your garden
  • Less sensitive to dryness than many other ferns
  • Can be grown as a houseplant in cool rooms

Partial to full shade is perfect for Fortune’s Holly Fern, or a little morning sun in cooler zones. It grows easily in most soils, preferring rich, fibrous soils that are moist but not constantly flooded. Easy to grow, it is less prone to irreversible shriveling if too dry, and it isn’t bothered by pests or diseases. In cold zones remove winter-damaged leaves in early spring – new growth will quickly replace them.
