More Information About Cyrtomium

Cyrtomium, commonly known as holly fern, is known for its bold tropical appearance, which is in stark contrast to the soft-textured nature of most typical ferns. Cyrtomium ferns are tough and durable plants. Holly ferns tolerate drought conditions and make great additions to the low-maintenance woodland garden. We are pleased to offer an extensive listing of the most cold-hardy holly ferns for sale including the ever popular Cytomium falcatum.

Like most ferns, cyrtomium species prefer part shade and a rich consistently moist but not soggy soil, but they can tolerate short periods of drought. Unlike many hardy garden ferns, holly ferns also make good houseplants in climate where they aren't winter hardy. Deer tend to avoid the leathery, evergreen Cyrtomium fronds, preferring more tender plants to nibble on. The bold texture and leathery fronds make Holly ferns good plant partners for hosta, carex, arisaema, dicentra and solomon's seal. When you are ready to buy cyrtomium for your woodland garden, check out our online list of Holly ferns for sale.
