Polystichum acrostichoides

Christmas Fern

Christmas Fern has green, shiny foliage.  Young fiddleheads in spring are silvery and scaled.  Polystichum acrostichoides is evergreen and looks like a Boston Fern. It will not spread or naturalize, but in time the clumps will increase in size.  Songbirds will use parts and scale-like hairs in nest construction. Christmas Fern hugs the ground in winter.

PRN Preferred:  We love the hardiness and the neat evergreen foliage of this fern.
