Japanese Beech

The Japanese beech fern (Phegopteris decursive-pinnata, synonym Thelypteris decursive-pinnata), is an easy deciduous ground cover which spreads at will, but not aggressively, in the comfort of light shade and compost. It serves extremely well where a bright green understory feature is desired for sparkle in the garden design. The ┬ásimple lance-shaped fronds form a bushy overlapping colony and mature at 12″ to 24″.

It will tolerate both heat and cold making it welcome in a variety of habitats and conditions from Zones 4 and higher.
