One of the most familiar ferns of eastern North America, Christmas Fern is named for its evergreen fronds. The firm, deep green leaves are a great companion for woodland wildflowers. Shady wooded slopes are its native habitat, and it will thrive in any well-drained soils. Avoid planting it in consistently moist or heavy clay soils, as poorly drained soils can result in crown rot. Resistant to damage from deer, the rhizomatous plants will expand to form a large clump, but will not creep or form ground cover.
