The Profile

Southern Shield Fern

The modern southern garden should include a variety of ferns. Southern Shield Fern, Dryopteris ludoviciana, is an evergreen to semi-evergreen variety that spreads throughout spaces by rhizomes making it an excellent choice to use as ground covers. The arching, triangular fronds typically reach 2 to 3 feet in length & offer bright color & feathery texture when used in arrangements for entertaining. This particular plant is a good deer resistant selection that may be used in well saturated shade areas but it should also be noted that the variety holds up particularly well during dry spells, too. Learn how to create stunning bouquets accented with this beautiful fern.
