Marginal Wood Fern (Dryopteris marginalis) is an evergreen fern which grows in a neat clump and does not spread. It will be a great addition to your shady rock gardens or as a garden border! The leaves of Marginal Wood Fern are bright green in colour in the spring and turn to a bluish-green colour around mid-summer.
Marginal Wood Fern can tolerate drier soils and requires low maintenance once established. It can also tolerate tree root competition. Its foliage provides a year round protection for birds and small animals.
Plant in soil rich in organic matter. Add only a thin layer of mulch to avoid crown rot. Ensure enough watering is provided during the hot summer months.
