Champion's Wood Fern (Dryopteris championii)

10.00


Although this fern is a slow grower it is well worth the patience to finally have its glossy broad oval bipinnate bipinnate fronds stand steadfastly up to winter's tempestrous tantrums. The Loch Ness green pinnae contrast with the deep reddish-brown chaff that hug the stipe and rachis. The oblong lanceolate pinnules have smooth to barely lobed margins which curve down slightly except at the base where blunt dagger-like auricles overlap adjacent segments. Early morning, late afternoon, or bright filtered light and moist fluffy humus along with regular watering should keep this fern in top form.
