Lustrous, dark green fronds up to 90cm (36in) long arranged in a distinctive shuttlecock-like shape. This evergreen fern is aptly named since the substantial fronds resemble large swords. Perfect for providing all year foliage interest for a mixed border in full or partial shade, it performs best in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil.Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould, composted pine needles or garden compost into the planting hole. Goes well with: Sarcococca confusa, Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens', Polygonatum odoratum, Epimedium x youngianum 'Niveum', Ruscus aculeatus, Hosta 'Big Daddy'
