PHEGOPTERIS HEXAGONOPTERA - BEECH FERN
Beech fern grows all across eastern North America and is very common in the forests there.
It is a temperate region plant growing in USDA Climate zones five through nine. Like most ferns, this one grows well in damp conditions but can also withstand a drier spot if in the full shade. This fern prefers partial to full shade. They have a mature size of one foot to three feet in width and one foot to two feet in height. It has a creeping rootstock that forms a clumping habit. The fronds are very triangular in shape. It would be a good fern to grow to fill in a large area with mostly ferns. This fern is deer resistant so if you have problems with the deer plant this fern. Climate Zone: 5 to 9 Mature Height: 1 to 2 feet Mature Width: 1 to 3 feet Sunlight: Partial to Full Shade Ships As: Bareroot Plant
