    Comments about American Meadows Cristate Broad Buckler Fern Crispa Whiteside - Plant:

    Plants arrived well packed and in very good condition; their attractive foliage blends well with trilium and other native perennials and they are thriving under about 70% side-shading from my Carolina hemlocks.
