Poly Fern- Polypodium. Polypodium refers to between 75 and 100 species of true ferns that are found all over the world, including these ferns commonly referred to as terrestrial ferns
The name derives from the Greek terms "poly" meaning many and "podion" meaning little foot, due to the foot like appearance of the rhizomes and sprawling branches. This species of fern has crawling rhizomes that produce fronds along intervals of the rhizomes.

The Poly Fern is one of the hardiest of all the ferns in the Polypodium family, possessing the innate ability to grow on rock surfaces and areas devoid of soil. When soil is present, these ferns will adapt most easily to sandy soil and dirt with granular particulates inside. The fern reproduces by sporulation, like all ferns, and will quickly spread itself over exposed rock faces in great clumps. An initial plant will develop smaller colonial variations with ease, making them a suitable alternative to most kinds of creeping ivy when it comes to decorating the outside of a brick house or any area low in soil. Originally native to the eastern United States, Polypodium vulgare is hardy and can stand up to various climates. The fronds of the Fern are bright green and can measure 10-50 centimeters in length, often possessing asymmetric leaflets that serve as a food source for whitetail deer and birds. These leaflets bear bright yellow spore sites that can deviate in color to the point of turning a rich, vibrant orange. These sori give the leaflets a vibrance that surpasses most normal ferns. When choosing the fern for landscaping, it is vital that their propensity for reproduction be kept in mind - although it minimizes the amount of effort required to create uniform decorations, they can sometimes act invasively - this can be avoided by pruning the ferns regularly, placing them in an area where they are out of the direct line of the wind, or even placing them on solitary rock outcroppings from which the spores cannot spread. This fern serves as one of the easiest and most convenient ferns to use in landscaping, making them a favorite among beginning landscapers and discerning experts.
