Neutral Malus2006 On Jun 7, 2008, Malus2006 from Coon Rapids, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

This species is zone 4 hardy - I have seen it in a few fellow gardener's yard but may require special care. Possible zone 3b hardy?

Positive Cretaceous On Feb 17, 2007, Cretaceous from El Sobrante, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

This fern has done well on our front porch, where it is shaded from the sun and protected from strong winds. Needs to be sprayed daily with filtered water, and fed (diluted fish emulsion) about every two-three weeks. Protect from slugs and snails. Native to the Himalayan Mountains of China and Nepal.
