This is the signature fern of Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory and they use them to fill in spaces and add texture to the showier plants. The little leaflets or fronds are about a centimeter, or less than half an inch. The frilly, scalloped edges and shiny black stems are so pretty! These are actually not too hard to grow in the garden or of course as houseplants, but do NOT let them dry out. See post below for update about the Conservatory.
