Great native fern

I have planted many of this native fern on hillsides. Does wonderful with Native Oak and Redwood trees as a natural companion planting. Clumps become a nice full tight form. Needs occasional removal of old fronds but that is the only maintenance. With age and wood mulch it is also fairly drought tollerant with age.
