My favorite of all the ferns, Polystichum setiferum ‘Pumoso multilobum’ swirls in a way that has caused it to be compared to a whirlwind. As it matures, it becomes fluffier. I have two of these, and they anchor the woodland bed.
It’s really hard to capture the dynamic nature of this plant in a photo, but trust me: it has more than a little personality.
I keep stepping back to try to give you an idea of its presence in the woodland. I give up! It simply needs to be seen to be believed. Come on out any time and I will introduce you to this, my favorite plant in the garden this week. Check out Danger Garden for Loree’s fave of the week, and be sure to see the comments for links to others’ choices.
