(Mature Size: 48-60"T x 24-36"W)
(Dryopteris x australis), the Dixie wood fern, a hybrid between its fellow southerners, Dryopteris celsa (log fern) and Dryopteris ludoviciana (southern shield fern) offers the garden and gardener an outstanding option for an elegant, hardy and tall structural element.
Dense bushes of bright green 4 to 5 foot fronds with contracted tips bearing abortive spores are semi evergreen and enjoy life in moist shade.
This sterile hybrid, though southern in origin is wonderfully versatile and will withstand cold winters and do well in areas of high summer heat as well.
Great addition to the back of the hosta gardens next to 'Blue Angel' or 'Fat Cat'.
