Christella dentata – Binung

Christella dentata (chris-TELL-ah den-TAR-tah) is an attractive, hardy fern to 1m. In nature they grow along rainforest creeks banks or in wetland areas. They prefer shaded or partly shaded sites making them ideal for under decks or as an indoor pot plant.  Binung is fast growing and is easy to grow in a variety of soils as long as moisture is available. They grow into neat clumps and can be helpful for suppressing weeds. Cutting off the dead fronds keep them looking fresh and vibrant.
