Australian Sword Fern

Australian Sword Fern (Nephrolepis obliterata), also known as Emerald Queen, is a very attractive plant with sword-shaped leaves that remain sturdy in windy areas. It grows vigorously and is a tough and adaptable plant. It seems to have no problem taking the heat in Texas (or presumably, Australia!).

Its upright and dark green fronds make it perfect for interior planters or large pots. This plant was introduced in the heyday of foliage plants by several companies as Australian Sword or Kimberly Queen.
