Dryopteris wallichiana
4.50
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!

Would just like to say a huge thankyou for the order of 6 hardy geraniums which have been successfully delivered and planted! I cant believe how speedily and efficiently you dealt with this. I ordered them on Saturday 11th May, you replied to say they would be despatched on Monday 13th and delivered on Tuesday 14th-which they were. The plants were very carefully and securely packed, and I have to say the quality of them all is first class. I planted them yesterday, and I hope they enjoy the climate here in Buckinghamshire-perhaps slightly more benign than Wales!! Once again thankyou for everything-first class service, first class plants. LJ, Bucks (June 2013)
