Plant Description

Quite common in the woods of eastern North America, Christmas Fern occurs where the soil is rich but well-drained. It looks like an upright deep green Boston Fern with fronds up to 24 inches long. The shiny leaves are evergreen and form neat clumps. This is a good one for shady foundation plantings. And once established, Christmas Fern is quite drought tolerant.
