Broad, Dark Green Glossy Fronds, Grows In An Outward, Spreading, Vase

The plant you are describing is most likely a tassel fern (Polystichum polyblepharum). It is a beautiful and versatile fern that is native to North America. Tassel ferns are known for their broad, dark green, glossy fronds that grow in an outward, spreading, vase-shaped clump. They can grow to be 18-24 inches tall and 12-18 inches wide.

Tassel ferns are easy to grow and require very little care. They prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. They are tolerant of drought, heat, and cold. Tassel ferns are also deer-resistant and relatively resistant to pests and diseases.

To grow tassel ferns, simply plant the seeds or seedlings in the spring or fall. Space the plants 12-18 inches apart. Water regularly, especially during the first year after planting. Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage new growth. Tassel ferns are overwinter hardy in zones 4-9.

Here are some additional tips for growing tassel ferns:

  • Amend the soil with compost or other organic matter before planting.
  • Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Divide the plants every 3-4 years to maintain vigor.
  • Cut back the plants to the ground in the fall after the first frost.

Tassel ferns are a beautiful and easy-to-grow addition to any garden. They provide long-lasting interest, attract wildlife, and are relatively low-maintenance. They are a great choice for borders, beds, containers, and rock gardens.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
