Remote Wood Fern

Description

Dryopteris remota, the scaly buckler fern or remote wood fern, is a fertile hybrid between Dryopteris affinis and Dryopteris expansa. It displays some of the finer characteristics of each parent from the crown’s golden scales inherited from D. affinis to the fine textured light green foliage of D. expansa. It is one of the earliest ferns to appear in the spring bringing joy to the winter weary garden and gardener. The evergreen lanceolate fronds fan out and form a lusty 2 to 3 foot bush in good light with no particular soil requirements. This exceptionally drought tolerant hybrid is a popular selection in Zones 4-8.
