Southern Shield Fern

Dryopteris

Dryopteris ludoviciana partial shade  shade lover  new plant

Polished, stiff and sumptuously dark green, this noble southern denizen forges an impressive nearly vertical clump of tall, leathery narrow fronds. Undeterred by heat, humidity and alkaline sites, Southern Wood Fern remains evergreen where winters are mild, relishing moist soil but also performing well in drier conditions. D. ludoviciana makes a verdurous no-fuss partner for Polygonatum o. ‘Variegatum’ in a shady border or woodland setting.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Customer Comment:

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
