Dryopteris goldieana is the largest of the US native (Minnesota south to Alabama) evergreen wood ferns. Shaggy brown fiddleheads unfurl in spring, transforming into 4' long, dark green fronds. Dryopteris goldieana makes a spectacular clump, growing best in a moist, acidic, woodland garden, albeit quite drought tolerant when the need arises.
