Marginal Wood Ferns feature arching grey-green fronds that form vase-like circles from the rootstock. The leathery twice-pinnate, evergreen fronds are from 1-3 feet tall. This native, non invasive and easy to grow plant is ideal for rock gardens, naturalizing, or mixing with wild flowers. Easily add some lush, year round colour. It thrives best in full to partial shade.
