Looking for a fern that is easy to grow and dependable? The Eastern Wood Fern is just that. This distinct evergreen fern has beautiful arching fronds that typically form a non-spreading, vase-shaped mound. The young, light green fern fronds mature to a blue-green color by midsummer. Excellent when used for a specimen, mass planting, or even a container.

Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (i.e. garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out.
