The Narrow Hart’s Tongue fern differs from the plain species, unsurprisingly, by having narrower leaves but also with an undulating margin giving an extremely attractive rippling effect to the plant as a whole. It is also a touch smaller than the species when mature, tolerant and a must for fern collectors.
Asplenium scolopendrium Angustifolia
Lustrous, tough, bright green fronds with serrated edges that are retained all year. This handsome, evergreen, hart’s tongue fern, is perfect for a shady woodland edge, shrub or mixed border. For the best results plant with bold swathes of shade tolerant perennials in humus-rich, well-drained, preferably alkaline soil.
