(Mature Size: 24-48"T x Spreading)
'Cristata the King' (Dryopteris affinis) is the "king" of the many Dryopteris affinis cultivars.
The species, commonly called the Golden-scaled Male Fern is a distinguished wintergreen with a highly ornamental flourish of spring fronds garnished with shaggy golden scales.
This characteristic carries on to its many varieties making them a very welcome addition to the beauty of spring.
These 2 to 4 foot fronds are crowned by shredded tips, and this crested feature manifests itself on the tips of the pinnae as well giving the entire frond a unique silhouette.
