Dryopteris x clintoniana, no relation to Bill and Hillary, is a little-known naturally occurring fertile hexaploid (six sets of chromosomes) fern hybrid...a cross of Dryopteris goldiana and Dryopteris cristata. Found in the wild in scattered locations from Canada south to Maryland, Dryopteris x clintoniana makes a 3' tall clump of dark green evergreen foliage. Anything from slightly moist to average woodland garden conditions will make your Dryopteris x clintoniana happy. While this once integrated nicely with Arisaema 'Trumpeteer', such is no longer the case, so keep these two at a safe shouting distance.
