Dryopteris Felix-mas

Semi evergreen, often remains evergreen in mild areas. Tall upright feathery fronds. Ideal for mixed borders and under trees.

Suitable for moist humus rich soil but will tolerate quite dry conditions.

Height and spread 120 x 90cm

Remove old fronds in spring after last frosts to allow new growth to uncurl. A light organic fertiliser feed three weekly from late spring to early summer will produce large lush fronds.

Planted in the shade border
