Doodia media is also known as the rasp fern and this shade-loving plant is hardy down to around -7degrees. It might need protection during very cold winters but should survive if planted in a sheltered spot.
Exotic-looking evergreen or semi-evergreen.
Native to New Zealand.
New fronds emerge in spring and these are bright red, changing to dark green as they mature.
The stems remain red and this creates a striking contrast with the green foliage.
