Marginal Woodfern is a handsome, vase-shaped, evergreen fern with rich, blue-green color. In spring, furry golden fiddleheads arise in circles from the rootstock and unfurl into large, gracefully arching fronds that last all the way through frost. Occurring naturally in shaded rocky crevices, this fern makes an elegant display all season long. (Dryopteris marginalis)

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).

The most drought-tolerant of all the wood ferns.
