Description
Christmas Fern is one of the native treasures of the American woodland. With glossy green fronds that are usually under two feet in length, it can be found decorating the forest floor over much of the continent. The long-lasting glossy fronds and the plants very orderly habit (slow to spread) make it perfect for rich garden accents.

    By Happy Frog

    from Northern Virginia

    Wanted to add some additional Christmas fern to my woods. Purchase them last fall. They are coming big and strong. Looking forward to enjoying them next winter when everything else dies back.
