This wonderful fern hybrid of the Australian Polystichum proliferum and the Asian-American Polystichum braunii produces robust-growing, deer-resistant clumps to 2' tall x 3' wide. Clumps of Polystichum x dycei are composed of sturdy, 30" long, slightly arching, dark green fronds which in fall produce new plants at the end of the fronds by proliferation. Rather kinky...interracial marriage, then offspring without mating...ain't that all the rage today.
