The common name of uniformed petticoat male fern creates interesting images of a "fern in drag". From mountainous woodlands of Asia comes this stunning crested form of Dryopteris uniformis, an easy-to-grow evergreen fern, which forms a medium-sized tight clump of 2' long, erect, dark fronds. The tip of each pinnae (leaflet) is, of course, a tiny petticoat. We've grown this in our woodland shade garden for over two decades...what a absolutely fantastic fern!
