Nephrolepis exaltata ‘Rita’s Gold’

Boston fern

Introduced in 2006, ‘Rita’s Gold’ is a Boston fern with a difference. Firstly, it is more compact than its congeners, reaching only 30 to 40 cm in height at maturity. Secondly, its cut, wavy chartreuse fronds give color to shady areas, where this plant performs well. Direct sun should be avoided. The golden color is maintained throughout the season. This plant requires little fertilization. Water stress should be avoided. Shade in light.
