Hardy Ferns

Polystichum acrostichoides

Christmas Fern
Commonly known as Christmas Fern, this very popular evergreen is quite robust when grown in rich moist soil, although it is tolerant of drier spots once established. Dark green 2' fronds gracefully arch in ever expanding clumps. Great cut flower fern! Grow in an evenly moist soil in part to full shade.
