Description
"Deer Fern" is one of the most richly-colored deep greens of them all, with even darker stems. In most zones, its beautiful foliage persists year-round. And the name, "Deer Fern" is just that--the name. This one, like most other ferns, is not a meal for Bambi--ferns are deer-resistant.

        They were not very good plants. Extremely small and came totally dried out.
