Fern Sword, Nephrolepis exaltata
Apparently there is confusion with the actual botanical name! The common name is ‘Kimberly Queen’ Sword Fern. Widely used in South Florida for its more compact growth and tolerance to full sun. Technically this particular fern is not native since it has been crossed (hybridized) however it is commonly used as native and few people know the difference. Does well in pots and planters but does not weep (droop) like the well known Boston Fern. Spreads by underground rhizomes like most other ferns.
