Goldie's Giant Wood Fern

Dryopteris goldiana, Goldie’s wood fern, is an east coast native that is a classic in east coast landscape design. The statuesque three to four foot bold fronds stretch their broad canopy handsomely over the garden’s lower shade lovers. Though deciduous it is a reliable and welcome pastel green contribution especially in challenging cold area fern gardens. It has produced numerous hybrids (see Dryopteris celsa for example) which are equally desirable and reliable. Give this sturdy and dependable species moist compost and a woodland setting in Zones 3
