Product Description

Shield Fern - Dryopteris cristata 

Shield Ferns are a hardy smaller fern, easy to grow and to transplant, and though like most ferns they prefer shaded moist areas, they are very tolerant to drier soils. This fern does particularly well in areas of the Southeast ranging from Illinois to the coast, as this is its native habitat. In areas with optimum soil conditions, this fern can be an aggressive grower! It is a great option for groundcover in relatively poor, moist soils beneath shade trees. Shield Ferns have particularly elegant fronds with broader, thicker leaves than other ferns. This fern will typically die down to the roots in winter climates which experience hard freezes, and then grow back during the spring.  Buyers should be aware that the foliage of most Shield Ferns toxic, and these should not be planted in areas where animals or small children can access them without supervision.  This type of fern can grow to become up to two feet tall and also around two feet wide.  It is a rapid growing and grows to maturity within first season of being planted.  It does great when planted in climate zones three through eight and are very easy to grow.  They look great when used to provide a beautiful and colorful border for gardens or lawns.  These do not require any special attention or maintenance and grow to become very healthy and beautiful.  Homeowners and gardeners love this fern for the serene look that they provide to all areas where they are added.
