Easy to grow in most cool, moist shaded sites and useful for very wet sites.Its luminously bright green and bold vase shape makes this one of the treats of early summer; they can become a bit jaded in late summer when not in their favoured sheltered spot with moisture.Older plants can produce fertile fronds that remain decorative through winter.
