Leather Fern – Live Plant

Florida is the only state where the giant leather fern, Acrostichum danaeifolium, is found. The giant leather fern grows in coastal hammocks and in brackish and mangrove swamps and further inland along canals and pond edges. It grows vigorously in full sun to full shade but it will not tolerate freezing temperatures. It is used in landscaping as a specimen plant, and in habitat restorations, but it requires constantly wet soil.

Perennial. 1 gallon pot. Grown by Wise Hands.
