Dryopteris marginalis

Common name: Marginal Wood Fern

Native plant

Marginal Wood Fern is a vase-shaped well-behaved, non-colonizing fern for the cool, woodland landscape. Never becoming aggressive, the broad, dark, leathery, evergreen fronds of marginal wood fern are from 1-3 ft. high and as much as 10 in. wide. Fiddleheads show up in spring and are golden brown and furry. In snowy winters, it can be glimpsed protruding through the snow, its blue-green coloration in contrast to the surrounding white.

Also available in quarts.
