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.
