Wood Fern - Dryopteris expansa

Wood Fern, Dryopteris, Zones: 2-9, Height: 1-4 feet, Prefers shade or partial sun

Wood fern species are found throughout every region of the Eastern United States. Dixie wood fern grows from New York to Virginia and continues its journey across the Gulf states. It grows in riparian areas and other moist places where it prefers shade, fertile soil, and humid conditions. Its thin fronds widen in the middle and take on a lustrous, dark green tone.

Marginal wood fern is prevalent in northern regions, where it survives as far north as Ontario, Canada. Leaves are evergreen, and the plant is easy to grow. It survives periods of drought and thrives in rocky soils. Though it survives in cold climates, gardeners as far south as Georgia have found success with this hardy plant.

The Southern wood fern is a tall fern known for its delicate silhouette and glossy fronds. It is a warm-loving fern found primarily in the Southeastern United States but can also thrive indoors when given suitable shade and water. Outdoors, the plant is located in shade gardens, water gardens and can act as a specimen plant in vases or other locations.

Fancy Ferns, as Evergreen wood ferns are sometimes called, are adaptable plants that grow well in slightly acidic soil. You often find them in outdoor vases, where they display their lacy fronds. The leaves are dark green and glossy and do best in shaded areas.

Goldie's wood fern is a tall, specimen plant with a unique, colorful, yellow display. Fronds are wide and spaced dramatically along the stem. Reaching heights up to 4 feet, Goldie wood fern is often found as a backdrop to wildflowers, but only when it isn't standing alone for all to see.

Crested wood fern is used as a ground cover because of its low height and prolific nature. Like all of the ferns mentioned above, Crested wood fern thrives in moist, fertile soils and shaded areas.

Wood Fern look great when used around fences and other locations to create a fantastic and beautiful border.
