Robust Male Fern

Description

Dryopteris x complexa is commonly called the robust male fern and robust it is. Specimens can readily reach five feet in height with an equal spread. Since it is also evergreen it makes an excellent plant for screening. A fertile hybrid between Dryopteris affinis (golden scaled male fern) and Dryopteris filix-mas (the male fern) it brings the glorious golden trimmed scaly fronds of its D. affinis parent to the spring garden. Once established it is also quite drought tolerant. Give this excellent specimen a wide space for admiration in Zones 2.

Produced seasonally.
