(syn: Thelypteris normalis) The robust Thelypteris kunthii is one of our favorite Southeast US native ferns and is probably the most spectacular fern we grow...but then, we happen to like abundant maidens in our garden. The large, triangular fronds of light green, produced all summer, contrast nicely with the white stipes (stems) that support them. The slowly rhizomatous, deer-resistant, deciduous clumps of Thelypteris kunthii spread nicely to make incredible woodland masses.
