(Mature Size: 12-24"T x Spreading Habit)
The Christmas Fern (Polystichum acrostichoides) is a very common eastern North American native, and is especially loved because it is evergreen even in severe winters.
This is an adaptable species that will grow in almost any situation - shady, rich or poor soil, rubble or compost etc. - but surprisingly, it does not thrive west of the Rockies.
The plant height varies from 1 to 2 feet, and will gradually colonize an area even in poor soil. Christmas Fern is a top choice for gardens in Zones 3 through 9.
The dark green color adds contrast to the hosta garden when placed near blue and gold hostas and even a silver Pulmonaria.
