Hart's Tongue Fern - Asplenium scolopendrium

Nice fern to add to the shade garden. Fronds are not divided but actual strap shaped, adding a more coarse textured look. Excellent mixed in the border with other ferns and shade loving plants. Looks like a hardy Birds Nest Fern. Good in Container.

Plant in cool, moist alkaline soil. Needs good drainage. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer before new growth begins. Divide as needed in fall to maintain plant vigor.
