Quick Overview:

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 simple lance-shaped fronds form a bushy overlapping colony and mature at 12? to 24?.

Description

Easily grown in moist soils in part sun to full shade. Prefers fertile, moist, humusy loams that are rich in organic matter. Soils should not be allowed to dry out. Avoid standing water. Site in locations protected from strong winds to prevent damage to the fronds. The old fronds should be cut off in late winter prior to the emergence of the new growth. Propagate by division or spores. Spreads by rhizomes to form colonies.
