Description How to Grow Delivery

Pellaea rotundifolia is a dainty, evergreen fern with an unusual foliage pattern and an elegant, cascading habit. Fronds up to 25cm long with fine, pink-flushed stems carry pairs of glossy, dark green, leathery leaflets. The ribbons of button-like foliage form low, cascading rosettes. A tender fern, it can be grown outside in a summer container, or all year round as a house or conservatory plant. Pellaea rotundifolia looks beautiful cascading over the sides of a trough, creeping through a terrarium or bottle garden, or tumbling from a kitchen windowsill. RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height and spread: 40cm (16in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Plant in partial shade in fertile, acid, well-drained soil. Feed and water regularly until fully established. Protect from hot midday sun. This fern is tender and must be protected from frost so it is best planted into a container and moved into a frost-free position over winter. It also makes an excellent houseplant and particularly suits terrariums.
