Asplenium scolopendrium - hart´s tongue fern

Hart’s tongue fern is the only hardy fern with entire edge. There are not individual leaflets as on other species 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.
