  • $19.95
    Unit price per 


Arborvitae Fern, though it produces spores is not a true fern but a prehistoric plant called a club moss.  Its thick scaly leaves, that resemble Arborvitae or Cedar, form a matting groundcover quickly shading out weeds. Grows in partial shade to shade, in well-drained, organically enriched soil. Though it likes shady moist spots, it does not withstand standing water.  It is an easy plant to grow and looks great forming a skirt around taller plants and is excellent in containers and hanging baskets.  Needs good drainage when grown in containers. After a harsh winter if fronds appear ragged cut it back, apply an all purpose slow-release fertilizer, and new growth will appear quickly. 

Hardy in zones 6B to 9A
