Plant Features

Hardy Holly Athyrium Plant is a close relative of the Japanese Holly Fern. It has the same holly-like, spiked leaves, though just a bit less glossy, and is a slightly lighter shade of green. Its leaves, though hardly fern-like, grow along trailing stems, just as any fern does. Hardy Holly is also more cold tolerant than its cousin, the Japanese Holly, so may suit your climate better.
