A versatile deer-proof denizen of Japan and South Korea, this lavish fern’s hallmark is the way its firm new croziers uniquely flop backwards in a relaxed tassel-like manner, and then eventually flatten upon maturity. Emerging from a central rosette and reaching up to 2 ft. in length, the shiny, bipinnate forest-green fronds are described by fine-hewn overlapping pinnae plus a soft dusting of copper-colored hairs. The Tassel Fern bestows mesmerizing evergreen sparkle to foundations, shady borders, naturalized areas and woodland plantings, where evenly moist soil with good drainage and dappled light ensure a healthy crown.
