This selection of the deer-resistant deciduous male fern was selected for its very narrow fronds, upright growth habit, square pinnules (green segments that make up the leaf) and ease of growth. Male fern grows equally as well in acid or slightly alkaline soils...plant one near a lady fern, put on some Celine Dion, and get out the binoculars!
