Dryopteris filix mas is commonly referred to as Basket Fern, Shield Fern or Common Male Fern. Its specific epithet filix-mas means Male Fern (filix "fern", mas "male"). The female version is Athyrium filix-femina (Common Lady Fern). This selection is a vigorous, large, arching, deciduous fern with clump-forming, stout rhizomes supporting lance-shaped, green fronds that turn bronze in fall. This is a robust fern that can thrive in difficult areas and is rabbit resistant.
Parsley Male Fern is easy to grow and maintain. It thrives in low light - full to partial shade in rich, fertile, evenly moist to damp soils. Soil should not be allowed to dry out. Ideal for beds, borders, hedge-banks, rocks, and underplanting of shrubs and woodland areas.
