    Posted by Sally Norris on 21st Aug 2019

    These blended well with the wildflowers that I already had in my flower bed. This was the added pop that it needed.

Beech Fern For Sale Affordable Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

The beech fern, or Phegopteris hexagonoptera, remains hardy from zone four to zone nine. So the fern remains an excellent choice for areas with a wide variety of temperatures. This lovely, leathery-leafed fern grows well in partial shade. It reaches its full height and spread in about five years, and becomes from one to three feet tall.

Beech ferns prefer locations with a dappled sun or some shade. The plant thrives in slightly acidic soil with moist to reasonably dry conditions. Beech ferns grow well surrounded by an abundant amount of organic material, such as fallen leaves, as it grows under deciduous trees in nature.

The beech fern is a perennial plant that has irregular tufts of compound leaves. The plant gets produced from spreading rhizomes. The beech fern’s fronds occur singly. They come up from a creeping rhizome measure from one to two feet long, and the fronds appear triangularly shaped.

The compound leaves become between .75 to 1.25 inches long and is oval shaped. The compound leaf contains approximately 12-20 leaflets joined together by a winged rachis at their base. The lanceolate leaflets taper from large; downward pointing leaves to smaller, narrow tips. All of the leaflets are pinnatifid, which means they are shaped like feathers coming from a common axis. Beech fern leaves appear as full as they are long.

Affordable Beech fern For Every Landscape

Red and straw-colored areas occur on the petiole of the compound leaves and have some scales which are light-colored at its base. Spore-bearing structures called sori found on the undersides of the leaflets look round and reddish brown upon maturity and are located at the tips of the veins of leaflets. These spores release during the summer season.

Beech Fern 

Beech Fern, scientific name Phegopteris hexagonoptera, is a broad-leafed, non-flowering ground fern from the Marsh fern family (Thelypteridaceae) native to forests, slopes and rocky outcroppings of the northeastern US. 

 

 This perennial fern, also commonly called the Broad Beech Fern, at maturity, will reach a height of 1.5 to 2 feet and will spread to 1.5 or 2 feet in width. This fern prefers partial or full shade and grows best in medium to very moist acidic soil. They prefer a groundcover of natural mulch or dead leaves. 

 

 The whole plant creates an urn-like shape, and its 1.5 to 2 foot long fronds extend into triangular arches. Each main frond is pinnated, or multi-divided into featherlike smaller leaves on either side. The leaves along the middle to the top of each frond display a more rounded or scalloped edge and are generally hairless, although some may feature occasional, sparse, and tiny cilia. The middle to lower leaves and stalks of the fern will display a more hairy appearance. 

 

 The Beech Fern is a medium green color, although some leaves may range in color from pale green to rusty red. Small red to brown sori, or spore capsules, are formed on the undersides of the leaves. The wind spreads the seeds of the Beech Fern during the summer months.
