The large leaf holly fern adds a whole different texture to the woodland garden. The bold textured fronds arch outward to make a 2' wide clump that is semi-evergreen in most winters. Semi-evergreen means that it still has leaves in spring, but they look so rough that you'll probably want to cut them off. If you love ferns, you'll want to add this easy grower to your collection.
