Mother Shield Fern (Polystichum Proliferum)


Fronds are dark green and will form a small trunk after many years. This fern prefers a shade position and protection from hot, drying wind. For best result, choose a moist, sheltered position or shady gully with draining organic rich soil.


Consistently moist and well-draining soil optimizes growth. Soil without good drainage can cause roots to rot or cause disease.
