Dryopteris marginalis is a superb easy-to-grow, but overlooked, native that should be in every woodland garden. From Maine west to Oklahoma and south to Georgia, Dryopteris marginalis can be found on rocky woodland slopes. Dryopteris marginalis typically makes an 18" tall x 2' wide, evergreen, deer-resistant, vase-shaped clump.
