Asplenium scolopendrium 'Angustifolia' - hart´s tongue fern

Angustifolia is a variety of hart’s tongue fern. It is a hardy fern with entire edge. In fact, the edges on this variety are serrated or curled and the leaves are narrower compared to the species.

There are not individual leaflets as on other ferns but one wide, bright green and glossy leaf. They respond well to fertilizing: the more nutrients – the bigger leaves. Though they are very hardy and can withstand heavy frosts evergreen we suggest cutting off all leaves in spring to encourage new growths. It needs light shade or shade, acid, moist but well-drained soil.
