Christmas Fern - Polystichum acrostichoides
Christmas fern well deserves its name because the bright green foliage of the plant will last throughout the holiday season. They grow from a crownless root and are very easily grown and maintained in the right conditions. For the best growing results plant this fern in a shady area so it will have moist and well-drained soil. The fern works very well as an evergreen border.
