Gardeners' Notes:

Positive noseykate On Aug 26, 2013, noseykate from SOUTH WEYMOUTH, MA wrote:

This is a large and beautiful fern. In my garden it's growing in mostly shade (some morning sun). It is vigorous and has doubled in size in the 2 years I've had it. Like other Dryopteris, it's a bit late to send up fronds in the spring. It was purchased at Garden in the Woods. Highly recommended.
