A very pretty fern from New Zealand with red brown new growth. I was warned that it wasn't particularly hardy and needed to be dry in winter, but I think I got a bit carried away in its first year, and managed to lose all the top growth to dessication, but fortunately it regrew in the spring. Now, it gets overhead protection to keep the worst of the wet from it, but otherwise it is left to get on with it, and seems much happier. I am going to split it before I try one entirely outside, but I have a good location ready, and high hopes.
