SKU: 232271 Category:

The Frosty Fern, also known as the Winter Fern, has become a popular holiday house
plant and gift plant, thanks to its textural, slivered foliage. It gets it common
name from the distinctive white color of its new growth, giving its tips a frosted
appearance.However, the question of why the fern plant is part of its common name
remains a mystery since it it not a fern at all! Instead, it is a variety of spike
moss, and confusingly enough, not a type of moss either.


Evergreen ferns are so named because they stay green in the winter providing they are growing in suitable zones. Their green foliage will actually die back in the spring.
