Buy Potted and Bare Root Christmas Ferns

Mature Christmas Ferns have leathery, dark green, lance-shaped evergreen fern leaves and are useful in dried arrangements.

Plant these evergreen ferns in humus-rich, loamy, moist but well-drained soil in part to full shade. One of the few evergreen ferns, Christmas ferns will tolerate a fair amount of sunlight if the soil is kept reasonably moist. 

Polystichum acrostichoides are evergreen ferns that are native to North America. They are clump forming and can be divided in spring, replanting the rhizomes just below the soil. Landscape uses: Christmas ferns make wonderful evergreen accents in the shade garden. Plant them with these companion plants: hostas, astilbe, bleeding hearts, foam flowers (Tiarella), lungworts (Pulmonaria), Tradescantia, and Tricyrtis.

Available as potted ferns and bare root ferns tubers.
