Asplenium Maori Princess : Hybrid native fern

If you are seeking a lush plant that is both versatile in its requirements and design application, then the Asplenium Maori Princess fern is the perfect choice. A Hybrid ground Fern, this gem boasts beautiful leathery mild green foliage that is adapted to sunny and shade conditions. It finds itself at home within formal structured gardens, or cradled in a more natural setting. This cross between the A. Bulbiferum x A.Oblongifolium, it is hardier and more elegant than its individual parent species. A personal favourite now of mine, it is a fern that is adaptable and practical for any designer garden.
