Evergreen ferns.  Fantastic choices in stock

Polystichum are mainly evergreen or semi-evergreen ferns and are a valuable plant when needing some structure and cover in the winter months.  The foliage has a long season of interest and with differing heights Polystichum can be used in a variety of different areas. 

Polystichum are easy to grow with minimum fuss needed to keep them happy and healthy.  The central growth forms a rosette shaped clump in moist soil and dappled shade.  New foliage tends to appear light green and epitomises the bright green growth that is associated with spring. 

Making a statement on site and in your next design: 

Polystichum polyblepharum.  A popular choice with erect hairy fronds and glossy upperside to the foliage.  Height 80cm

Polytichum setiferum Congestum.  A compact fern with congested fronds as the name suggests.  Ideal for use at the front of a border.  Height 30cm
