    Comments about American Meadows Cristate Broad Buckler Fern Crispa Whiteside:

    I had a special spot picked out in my garden so as to enhance other plants that I have. The plant arrived looking healthy, got it in the ground immediately and even covered with 2" mulch for winter cover. However, it did not survive the winter and that was very disappointing. Should have ordered earlier in the year so that it could have become more established in the garden and then it may have survived the winter. Disappointed that I lost it.

      Comments about American Meadows Cristate Broad Buckler Fern Crispa Whiteside:

      Plants arrived well packed and in very good condition; their attractive foliage blends well with trilium and other native perennials and they are thriving under about 70% side-shading from my Carolina hemlocks.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
