Polystichum setiferum

Soft-Shield Fern

Planted frequently in the cooler places in the western United States, these are some of the most garden-worthy Ferns available. Easy to grow, they blend well with other plants, providing a neat, symmetrical background of foliage. Found from the tropics to alpine climate, some of these water lovers grow tall, others are wide and low-growing. Hardy varieties are excellent in shady borders or rock gardens mixed with other plants. With humidity, tender varieties will grow indoors. Sold in containers in the house plant or fern section of nurseries.
