Polystichum acrostichoides-Christmas Fern

Propagating Polystichum or Christmas Fern should be done every 3-4 years by digging up the clump and dividing the crown. One can also propagate by collecting the fronds but that’s too much work. Like most ferns they prefer a highly organic friable soil in partial to full shade settings and grow up to 24" in height. Also like most ferns this one is deer resistant and it is hardy down to Zone 3 and evergreen as well. This is one of the most popular ferns.
