A large genus of 135 species found principally in the North Temperate region. The common name refers to the margins of the fronds, which resemble in a small way the spine-like protuberances on Holly leaves. Found in moist woods or among rocks; a few species are found in crevices or on ledges of cliffs.

POLYSTICHUM acrostichoides2807
Christmas Fern30-75cm  Zone: 3
One of the first ferns to send up fiddleheads in the spring. Covered with scruffy brown scales, they arise from the clump of last year's fronds flattened by winter's snow. The glossy, dark green leaves are more erect in summer, growing in dense, asymmetrical clumps. This is one of the best ferns for the woodland garden. It has elegant evergreen fronds, a neat pattern of growth, and is tolerant of deep shade; combining well with woodland shrubs and herbaceous perennials. If planted thickly, will serve as an attractive evergreen ground cover. Spores wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Fern spore germination instructions will be provided.
