Silver Lace Fern
Pteris ensiformis 'Evergemiensis' - Slender Brake Fern'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 8a-10b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8a, where this fern variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Silver Lace Fern is an easy to grow, moderate to fast growing perennial that features beautifully textured variegated white and green foliage. This wonderful fern is ideal for adding a bright splash of color to the shade garden. If you are looking for a plant that tolerates moist to wet soil conditions in shade, Silver Lace Fern is a fine choice!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mounding form to 3 feet tall and wide, the Silver Lace Fern is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or in stunning mass plantings to add color and texture to shady and moist areas. It's also great for pots, planters, hanging baskets and other containers that can be situated outdoors or indoors. A fine addition to woodland gardens, Asian gardens, bog gardens, cut foliage gardens, fern gardens, rock gardens, and around the garden pond and other water features. 




Cultural Preferences

Silver Lace Fern is easy to grow when planted right, and in the right spot. It adapts to most soil types, preferring a moist soil of average fertility and shade to mostly shade. All day dappled or filtered sun is okay, however, direct sun will cause damage to the leaves. This said, some early morning sun will be tolerated. If grown in dry soil make sure to provide ample water during dry periods or drought.
