Dryopteris wallichiana
4.50
Common Name: Wallich's Wood Fern
Flowering Period: Non flowering
UK Native? No - varied origins
Pot Size: 1.5 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!

Just to let you know that the plants arrived this morning. They are superb, as were the first lot. We have just spent a lovely afternoon in the sunshine planting them! I am so glad that I just chanced on your website one day when surfing for gardening stuff. It is a helpful and informative site and I enjoy going through the plant lists. I suspect that I will be ordering from you again fairly soon. SC Ammanford April 2006
