Plants By Type
Wood Fern - Dryopteris expansa
The Wood Fern is native to the cool, temperate areas of North America, Europe, and Asia, and can be found primarily as a groundcover in alpine forests or growing beneath the canopy of clustered evergreens. The fronds of the Wood Fern are particularly large and lacy, very wide, which helps provide a dramatic, feel to any landscape or garden. The center stalks of the fronds are thick and woody, and this fern is far more likely to stay green through harder winters than many other fern varieties. The Wood Fern is considered the most desirable evergreen plant as an ornamental element for garden borders, rock beds and landscapes.
