Cyrtomium falcatum

Common Name | Japanese Holly Fern
Popular Plant Non-CA Native | Pacific Nurseries
Non-CA Native
The very distinctive leaves of Cyrtomium falcatum often resemble a holly shrub. As a low-growing, evergreen here in the Bay Area, it’s hardy and easy to care for. It performs best in moist soil with lots of organic matter in shaded locations. It’s also deer resistant and even has some tolerance to salt air for installations near the coast. This attractive fern requires no pruning and looks great when massed or installed in rock gardens. It’s an excellent choice if you’re looking for a fern with a very unique character and appearance.
