Description :

Male fern

The Dryopteris genus has some 200 species of plants native to temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere. Most are deciduous and form attractive clumps over the years.

Dryopteris filix-mas or male fern is deciduous and grows into a clump about one metre in height. Dryopteris filix-mas is commonly found in Europe.

It has excellent ornamental qualities which can be put to good use in understory planting in groups of 3 to 5 plants per square metre.

You can also grow it in a pot on a shady patio. The effect is quite surprising!

Grow in shade or partial shade in all soil types, even compact, poor and dry. In a shady bed or under deciduous trees or conifers.
