Dryopteris wallichiana
4.95
Common Name: Wallich's Wood Fern
Flowering Period: Non flowering
UK Native? No - varied origins
Pot Size: 2 litre
The Royal Horticultural Societys Award of Garden Merit (AGM)

Plant in part or full shade.  HxS 90x90cm

Despite its varied distribution Hawaii, Jamaica, Mexico and Himalaya it appears to be fully hardy in Britain. We have been growing it outdoors for fifteen years in temperatures as low as -15C.

The fronds are lance shaped and pinnate-pinnatifid and the stipe and rachis are covered with brown scales, although the form most common in cultivation has black scales. Fronds are upright in habit and dark green. Slow to reach maturity, it is nevertheless an imposing and very architectural plant.

Customer Comments!

Im writing to say thank you for the three packages with pond plants which you have sent over the last few weeks, all beautifully packed. And for the note with the third box pointing out that there were dragonfly larvae on the hornwort, so the black bag should be emptied completely over the pond: very thoughtful of you! I had also noticed some dragonfly larvae on the hornwort which was in the first box, so I was already primed! Congratulations on a well-organised and environmentally-aware business.
