Grown for its foliage, Crested Surf is similar in appearance to a traditional Japanese Painted Fern, but the tips of the fronds (fern leaves) are double crested. It is a taller variety that is ideal for adding texture and colour to moist, shady areas of the garden. Foliage is dark green to silver-grey, making Crested Surf ideal as a border plant in a variety of types of garden. Can also be grown in containers and used for cuttings. Leave old fronds on the plant until new fronds are 6 inches long in the spring. Rabbit resistant. Not native to North America.
