Product Information

A delightful example of a fern plant that will survive and continue to look impressive throughout the seasons and deliver a remarkable display of colour and form.

The ‘Hairy Lip Fern’ boasts soft foliage coloured in an enviable silver, grey, and green shade across an abundance of finely divided fronds. The leaves form into tufted clumps, which provide excellent ground coverage.

Also known as ‘Cheilanthes Lanosa’, this fern performs and looks best when planted in the shade or full sun, and particularly loves loose and gritty rock plantings. So, for best impact on your garden, plant this variety at the front of a border in any level of shade, or in pots and containers for an outstanding patio feature.

This is a remarkable option for gardeners of all abilities, as it is hardy enough to withstand tough winter weather, while also being drought-tolerant in the summer heat, to retain a healthy and full look throughout the year.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot.

Care Information

Planting Advice:

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure or pine mulch to enrich the soil if necessary, as ferns enjoy a rich, fertile soil.
  • When planting several ferns arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots – if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the root ball - the aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the crown of the fern above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well from below the fronds to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Low maintenance and easy to grow, just feed and water ferns regularly from below the fronds until they are fully established.
  • In spring, after tidying, add a mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost around the crown of each plant
  • No pruning is needed.
