Broad Buckler Fern (Dryopteris dilatata)

7.00

This is a common and generally dispersed European species which is highly variable in the wild depending on the age of the plants and the habitat they occupy.  This variability is reflected in the size, fronds outline, and degree of dissection.  The fronds average two to three feet on our stock although the Victorians recorded plants up to six feet (most likely achieved in glass enclosures).  All the various forms exhibit triangular fronds with a distinctive shuttlecock frond arrangement.  They are quick and easy growers and not at all shy about self-sowing when the conditions are favorable.
