Fern Dryopteris championii
A vigorous, evergreen wood fern with neat glossy fronds and good vigor. The fronds remain erect all winter. Late to emerge. Creeps slowly.
Wood ferns have more garden-worthy species than any other fern genus and a few are native here in New England. They are vigorous, rugged ferns that do best in rich, moist woodland soil.
Ferns’ fine feathery textures make them the ultimate shade foliage plant. Most do best with even moisture and part shade. Ferns either creep with underground rhizomes or stay in a cluster – see note for each variety.
