Dryopteris wallichianaCommon Name: 'Alpine wood fern'
AGM. A very nice, distinctive fern, which forms a shuttlecock of glossy, semi-evergreen fronds that have prominent midribs, covered in hairy, black scales. H90cm S90cm.
Easy to grow in most cool, moist, lightly shaded sites and will grow in full sun if given plenty of moisture. Tolerant of dry shade but water regularly in their first season and mulch well. Good for under trees.
