Broad Beech Fern-Phegopteris Hexagonoptera

Beech Fern
The Broad Beech Fern, as it is called, grows from a rootstock that creeps its way into the atmosphere. Though the fonds sprout individually, it appears as though they are growing in clumps, and they appear in a lime green color. The Beech Fern is loved by many with a garden because it easily and quickly fills up a garden bed. The Broad Beech Fern has unique fronds. They are very broad at the base and get smaller toward the tip. This is a medium to large fern and can reach up to 2 feet in height and width when fully grown. It has the most beautiful emerald green color and can be found in woodland and swampy areas. It can also be considered a wetland plant. It does best when planted in climate zones 5 through 9 and prefers full to partial shade. This fern would be lovely in a shade garden. It does produce spores as a reproductive means. They also prefer moist soils with good drainage. Phegopteris Hexagonoptera is the botanical name for this plant.
