Polystichum polyblepharum is probably the most attractive fern we grow, so why is it so hard to describe? The dark, evergreen, plasticillate (made that one up) foliage arches out from a central crown, forming a 2' wide, deer-resistant clump. Each frond is a lacily-cut artistic masterpiece...this sounds pretty syrupy, doesn't it? Actually, the species name "polyblepharum" means "many eyelashes"...does that help? How about saying, "Polystichum polyblepharum is just one of the best damn ferns you will ever buy!"
