Cyrtomium fortunei var. ‘Clivacola’ ~ More compact form of Fortune’s Holly Fern, upright arching soft yellow-green fronds made of 12 to 25 pairs of leaflets that are more angled. Plant in afternoon to full shade & well drained, moist soil.

2020 – A good start at the beginning of April. Old fronds removed gradually in April.

2019 – Bought from Truffaut and planted in 2-litre pots attached to the trellis of the G. elliptica to experiment with a “wall of ferns”.
