Spinulose Wood or Toothed Wood Fern (Dryopteris carthusiana)

6.00

This is a fern that seems suited to almost any part of the garden with its willingness to thrive in areas with some sun to part shade from slightly moist to downright boggy. The narrowly oval blade skyrockets up from the crown making it distinct among the more relaxed habit of its other nearly tri-pinnate relatives. I find it a particularly good self-sower in my greenhouse and in its native range it is known to hybridize with other Dryopteris species. This will be listed as D. spinulosa in older floras.
