Info

This very rare but extremely easy-to-grow deer-resistant native is a naturally-occurring hybrid between Dryopteris ludoviciana and Dryopteris goldiana. The growth habit is an upright but rotund form with large, coarse, dark green, 1' wide semi-evergreen fronds. Think of this as a "bubba" fern for the moist woodland garden, eventually making a clump 3' tall x 2' wide. Although it is very tolerant of dry sites, a nice damp piece of ground will produce really spectacular results.
