Fern Thelypteris novaboracensis

Fern Thelypteris novaboracensis

New York Fern is one of the most drought and sun tolerant Ferns. Sharply, tapered (almost triangular) fronds spread to form a lovely ground cover. This vigorous grower will quickly fill in gaps left by spring ephemerals.

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.
